Sistema Integrado de Planificación de la Producción y Distribución para la Gestión de Excepciones

Abstract

In an international competitive environment, where companies can sell their products all over the world, communication and information exchange with other companies is of utmost importance. Nevertheless, most businesses are reluctant to share demand information or future plans with others. This paper describes an integrated production and distribution planning system in a supply chain with three stages: a manufacturer, its suppliers and customers. This system tries to provide solutions to improve the performance of the supply chain by identifying the information that must be exchanged between nodes and developing methodologies for production and distribution planning and scheduling in a coordinated manner. Moreover, a number of exceptions have been considered to make the model as realistic as possible.
