Abstract:

This report describes the development of hierarchical planning systems to support medium range planning and operational decisions in a batch processing production environment. In this approach, higher level decisions impose constraints to lower level actions, and lower level decisions provide the necessary feedback to reevaluate higher level actions. An analysis of the existing methodology to design hierarchical production systems is given. Computational results are presented.
