Planning to understand supply constraints (capacity / mix limitations,
logistics issues) and, similarly, incorporate these into the scheduling
- Build the plan using
Theory of Constraints & Optimization techniques to ensure that the
following objectives are achieved: build mix is achieved each week, plan is
structured so shops can run as efficiently as possible (e.g. paint is able to
batch paint colors), critical supply chain constraints are accounted for
(supplier capability issues & logistics costs, i.e. expediting) so that the
lowest cost build plan is achieved
