Advanced Planning Systems

Based on the fundamentals of ERP systems, additional details regarding (production) resource planning: personnel, means of production / production machines, time. Introdcution to IT-aided resource planning: basic challenges such as a shortage of available resources, restrictions (e.g. deadlines, delivery dates, concurrent tasks). Outline of general approaches to solutions: MRP I, MRP II systems. Analysis of particular challenges: sequencing problems, queues, machine scheduling, single-task control in processes. Work on practical problems with the aid of certain APS systems (software)
