Typology for planning and control: Combining object type, mode type, and driver type
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
Planning and control of production and logistics activities within a supply chain covers a wide range of scenarios and corresponding methods. Frequently the methods are classified based on the relation to different layouts and industries. The typology developed here is instead based on flow characteristics covering three main dimensions: object type, and hence also resource properties, related to the object being continuous or discrete; mode type related to if the flow is managed as continuous, intermittent or onetime; and driver type related to if forecast or customer order drives the flow. Hybrid systems are identified within each dimension and cross hybridity is identified by combining the three dimensions.
