Beschreibung

Sales revenues of enterprises are often subject to seasonal fluctuation. This leads to high or low utilized resources and this in turn to revenue losses. Hence, the enterprises invest a high effort to improve long and short-term resource utilization. In this context, disregarding future capacity utilization within the process of quotation leads to short-timed capacity adjustments for instance, additional work hours across seasons. This paper presents an approach which focuses on dependencies between costs and capacity by linking cost pricing and production scheduling. A first evaluation at an MTO supplier shows that order delays can be reduced by up to 95% and total costs by 21% compared to using the most appropriate priority rule.
