Hybrid solution methods for operational production planning
Lot-sizing is the main decision of the tactical and operational production planning. In the course of this project the problems of interdependencies between production steps and the synchronization are investigated. Beside the new modeling approaches the development of solution algorithms based on exact methods and metaheuristics is an essential aspect.
