Characterization of just in time sequencing via apportionment

SpeakerWieslaw Kubiak

The just in time sequencing is used to balance workloads throughout just in time supply chains intended for low-volume high-mix family of products. It renders supply chains more stable and carrying less inventories of final products and components but at the same time it ensures less shortages. A number of algorithms have been proposed in the literature to optimize just in time sequencing. This paper characterizes these algorithms via characteristics developed by the apportionment theory.
