# 7.2.1b The Variant Master Schedule at the End Product Level

### Intended learning outcomes: Explain the production plan and its corresponding MPS at the end product level.

Continuation from previous subsection (7.2.1)

There are two possibilities for the level of the variant master schedule. Figure 7.2.1.2 shows an example MPS at the end product level, supposing a quantity per of 1 for the general assembly G and an equal option percentage in the demand — with a deviation of 20% — of the two variants at the product family P level. For teaching purposes, the example does not take into consideration safety demand for the product family P.

Fig. 7.2.1.2        The production plan and its corresponding MPS at the end product level (example of a product family P with two different products, P1 and P2).

Note the negative demand on the level of the general assembly G, as discussed above. As for distribution of the deviation in the two periods of January and March, the reader can refer to Figure 5.2.3.4.

Continuation in next subsection (7.2.1c).

## Course section 7.2: Subsections and their intended learning outcomes

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.

• ##### 7.2.1b The Variant Master Schedule at the End Product Level

Intended learning outcomes: Explain the production plan and its corresponding MPS at the end product level.

• ##### 7.2.1c The Revision of the Variant Master Schedule According to Actual Splitting as Given by the FAS, and the Variant Master Schedule at the Assembly Level

Intended learning outcomes: Describe the revision of the MPS according to actual splitting of family demand as given by the FAS. Explain the production plan and its corresponding MPS at the assembly level.

• ##### 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.
