A LEXICOGRAPHICAL METHOD FOR A PRODUCTION PLANNING PROBLEM IN AN ENGINEERING INDUSTRY: A CASE STUDY

M Sivasundari, K S Rao, R Raju

Abstract


This paper deals mainly with the existing practices of production planning in a single-piece flow-based cellular manufacturing process making auto-electrical parts. Based on historical data from a case study industry, we identified multiple significant and relevant production planning objectives. This paper discusses a lexicographical method to solve the multi-objective programming model for workforce distribution to optimise production planning. This approach offers an opportunity to develop a better understanding of workforce distribution and the importance of the multiproduction channel, with insights into further production planning.
