Abstract

Aggregate production planning models are of the greatest importance to operations management, since these plans enable management to utilize the major resources at its command. In this report the structure of the aggregate planning problem and a number of different approaches are reviewed and presented. Approaches are classified in three categories: a) workforce smoothing models, b) production smoothing models, c) production and workforce models. The models are compared with respect to the cost structure, parameters estimation, forecast requirement, decision variables, computability and optimization techniques.
