Objectives and Approach

The objective of this project is to develop a distributed management decision-support system to manage and coordinate a group of companies, plants and shops that are linked together by a flow of materials, assemblies and finished products.

The project specifically addresses multi-site scheduling, where the scheduler receives orders from customers and generates production plans taking into account capacity and stock-level constraints. Tight feedback will be required from the management production system (materials requirements planning, local schedulers, etc).

The resulting software (based on the CIM-OSA model) will comprise basic components for human front-ends, application front-ends, system-wide data and scheduling applications.

The results of the project will be validated by applying them to a demonstrator running a simplified application based on an actual industrial situation.
