Download E-books Hierarchische Produktionsplanung und KANBAN (neue betriebswirtschaftliche forschung (nbf)) (German Edition) PDF

By Patrick Lermen

Mit der vorliegenden Arbeit knupft der Autor an zwei aktuelle Entwicklungstendenzen der produktionswirtschaftlichen Diskus sion an. Die Unzufriedenheit mit den computergestutzten Syste males zur Produktionsplanung und -steuerung nach dem MRP lI-Kon zept fuhrte einerseits zur Entwicklung der hierarchischen professional duktionsplanung und andererseits zu einer verstarkten Anwen dung dezentraler steuerungskonzepte, wie das in Japan ent wickelte und weltweit erfolgreich eingesetzte KANBAN. KANBAN basiert auf einer dezentralen Fertigungssteuerung, wo bei lediglich fur die Endmontage der Fertigerzeugnisse eine zentrale Vorgabe der Produktionsmengen erforderlich ist. Die Verantwortlichen der Endmontage sind dann - ebenso wie die Verantwortlichen aller untergeordneten Fertigungsstufen - fur die Beschaffung der benotigten Materialien selbst zustandig. Wahrend der Ablauf einer KANBAN-gesteuerten Just-In-Time-Fer tigung in der Literatur ausfuhrlich analysiert wird, sind An satze zur Festlegung des Produktionsprogramms der Enderzeug nisse, das den enter des KANBAN-Systems bildet, bisher weit gehend vernachlassigt worden. Mit der vorliegenden Arbeit zeigt der Autor eine Moglichkeit auf, die Ermittlung des Produktionsprogramms der Enderzeug nisse durch einen hierarchischen Planungsansatz vorzunehmen. Die Idee einer hierarchischen Dekomposition der operativen Produktionsplanung in Verbindung mit einer Aggregation sowie Disaggregation der Entscheidungsvariablen und der zugrunde liegenden Daten erweist sich als adaquate Methode zur Durch fuhrung einer optimierenden Produktionsplanung unter betriebs wirtschaftlichen Gesichtspunkten. VI Die Arbeit bietet eine Reihe neuer Erkenntnisse und zeigt in teressante weiterentwicklungen der hierarchischen Produktions planung auf. Hervorzuheben ist auch die fundierte Darstellung und examine des KANBAN-Systems. Die Ausfuhrungen durften sowohl fur die Theorie als auch fur die Praxis von Interesse sein und zur Weiter fuhrung der Diskussion anregen.
