Aggregate Planning

McGraw-Hill/Irwin

3-2

Goal: To plan gross work force levels and set firmwide production plans.

of production. May be actual units, or may be

measured in weight (tons of steel), volume (gallons of

gasoline), time (worker-hours), or dollars of sales. Can

even be a fictitious quantity. (Refer to example in text

and in slide below.)

The Hierarchy of

Production Planning Decisions

3-3

3-4

Suppose that D1, D2, . . . , DT are the

forecasts of demand for aggregate units

over the planning horizon (T periods.) The

problem is to determine both work force

levels (Wt) and production levels (Pt ) to

minimize total costs over the T period

planning horizon.

3-5

Important Issues

from making changes from one period to the next.

Bottleneck Planning. Problem of meeting peak demand

because of capacity restrictions.

Planning Horizon. Assumed given (T), but what is

right value? Rolling horizons and end of horizon effect

are both important issues.

Treatment of Demand. Assume demand is known. Ignores

uncertainty to focus on the predictable/systematic

variations in demand, such as seasonality.

3-6

Relevant Costs

Smoothing Costs

changing size of the work force

changing number of units produced

Holding Costs

primary component: opportunity cost of investment

Shortage Costs

Cost of demand exceeding stock on hand. Why should

shortages be an issue if demand is known?

Other Costs: payroll, overtime, subcontracting.

Aggregate Units

The method is based on notion of aggregate

units. They may be

Actual units of production

Weight (tons of steel)

Volume (gallons of gasoline)

Dollars (Value of sales)

Fictitious aggregate units

(Example 3.1)

One plant produced 6 models of washing machines:

Example continued

worker hours (i.e., cost): why?

requires: .32(4.2) + .21(4.9) + . . . + .06(5.8) =

4.8644 worker hours. Forecasts for demand for

aggregate units can be obtained by taking a

weighted average (using the same weights) of

individual item forecasts.

(this example is not in the text)

3-12

determining work force and production levels

for the next 8 months. Forecasted demands for

Jan-Aug. are: 420, 280, 460, 190, 310, 145,

110, 125. Starting inventory at the end of

December is 200 and the firm would like to

have 100 units on hand at the end of August.

Find monthly production levels.

Suppose that we are interested in determining a

production plan that doesnt change the size of the

workforce over the planning horizon. How would

we do that?

One method: In previous picture, draw a straight

line from origin to 1940 units in month 8: The

slope of the line is the number of units to produce

each month.

with no stockouts?

Answer: using the graph, find the straight line that goes

through the origin and lies completely above the

cumulative net demand curve:

From the previous graph, we see that cum. net demand curve

is crossed at period 3, so that monthly production is 960/3 =

320. Ending inventory each month is found from:

reasons:

3-20

production level of 320 unit/month with an

integer number of workers

number of workdays, a constant production

level may not translate to the same number of

workers each month.

3-21

Assume number of workdays per month is

given

K factor given (or computed) where

worker in one day

3-22

Finding K

of 40 days, the plant had 38 workers who

produced 520 units. It follows that:

K= 520/(38*40) = 0.3421

= average number of units produced by

one worker in one day.

3-23

Assume we are given the following # of

working days per month: 22, 16, 23, 20, 21,

17, 18, 10. March is still critical month.

Cum. net demand thru March = 960. Cum #

of working days = 22+16+23 = 61. Find

960/61 = 15.7377 units/day implies

15.7377/.3421 = 46 workers required.

Addition of Costs

Holding Cost (per unit per month): $8.50

Hiring Cost per worker: $800

Firing Cost per worker: $1,250

Payroll Cost: $75/worker/day

Shortage Cost: $50 unit short/month

3-26

Assume that the work force at end of Dec was 40.

Cost to hire 6 workers: 6*800 = $4800

Inventory Cost: accumulate ending inventory:

(126+98+0+. . .+687) = 2093. Add in 100 units netted out

in Aug = 2193. Hence Inv. Cost = 2193*8.5=$18,640.50

Payroll cost:

($75/worker/day)(46 workers )(167days) = $576,150

Cost of plan: $576,150 + $18,640.50 + $4800 =

$599,590.50 ~ $600K

3-27

In the original cum net demand curve, consider making

reductions in the work force one or more times over the

planning horizon to decrease inventory investment.

modified plan calls for reducing the

workforce to 36 at start of April and making

another reduction to 22 at start of June. The

additional cost of layoffs is $30,000, but

holding costs are reduced to only $4,250.

The total cost of the modified plan is

$467,450.

3-29

in order to reduce ending inventory to nearly zero

by matching the workforce with monthly demand as

closely as possible. This is accomplished by

computing the # units produced by one worker each

month (by multiplying K by #days per month) and

then taking net demand each month and dividing by

this quantity. The resulting ratio is rounded up and

possibly adjusted downward.

Problems Via Linear Programming

Linear Programming provides a means of solving

aggregate planning problems optimally. The LP

formulation is fairly complex requiring 8T variables

and 3T constraints, where T is the length of the

planning horizon. Clearly, this can be a formidable

linear program. The LP formulation shows that the

modified plan we considered with two months of

layoffs is in fact optimal for the prototype problem.
