Many companies rely on Material Requirements Planning (MRP) to support their Production Scheduling and Control (PS&C) functions. Since MRP does not provide a detailed shop floor schedule, these users have to implement either a third party procedure or an internally developed procedure for shop floor controls. In this thesis we consider a class of user shops which are characterized by the following features:
Specifically, we develop a MRP and Finite Scheduling System (MFSS) which calculates the weekly "net change" requirements of products, then generates the detailed daily job order schedules, and finally sequences jobs on machine queues. The objectives of the system are to maximize the utilization of the machines and to minimize setup times. The MFSS was programmed on a personal computer-based system utilizing off-the-shelf relational database software.
