Integral Logistics Management — Operations Management and Supply Chain Management Within and Across Companies

7.2 Adaptive Techniques

Intended learning outcomes: Explain techniques for standard products with few variants as well as techniques for product families.


Course section 7.2: Subsections and their intended learning outcomes

  • 7.2 Adaptive Techniques

    Intended learning outcomes: Explain techniques for standard products with few variants as well as techniques for product families.

  • 7.2.1 Techniques for Standard Products with Few Variants

    Intended learning outcomes: Present the conventional variant structure for a few, stockable variants. Explain the production plan and its corresponding MPS at the end product level and at the assembly level. Describe the revision of the MPS according to actual splitting of family demand as given by the FAS.

  • 7.2.2 Techniques for Product Families

    Intended learning outcomes: Present the super bill of material with option percentages x1, x2,…, xn. Describe the production plan and its corresponding MPS at the assembly level, using the example of a product family P with a number of variants in the order of the total demand quantity for the product family.



Course 7: Sections and their intended learning outcomes

  • 7.3 Generative Techniques

    Intended learning outcomes: Disclose the combinatorial aspect and the problem of redundant data. Present variants in bills of material and routing sheets as production rules of a knowledge-based system. Explain the use of production rules in order processing.

  • 7.4 Generative and Adaptive Techniques for Engineer-to-Order (ETO)

    Intended learning outcomes: Differentiate between the classical procedure and different archetypes of engineer-to-order. Describe the approach for basic and for repeatable engineer-to-order.

  • 7.5 Cooperation between R&D and Engineering in ETO Companies

    Intended learning outcomes: Describe different means used for cooperation between the R&D and the order-specific engineering departments. Present the portfolio of cooperation types between R&D and engineering in ETO companies.
