ESCOBAR, Pamela; GIRALDO, Jaime A  and  CARDENAS, Diana M. Scheduling Hybrid Production Systems, Make to Stock/ Make to Order, using Group Analytic Hierarchy Process Ordering (GAHPO). Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2012, vol.23, n.5, pp.33-46. ISSN 0718-0764.

This article presents a case study of a new production scheduling methodology applied on a manufacturing facility located on Manizales, Colombia, which combines Make to Stock (MTS) and Make to Order (MTO) environments. This implies to respond, using limited resources, to different, and sometimes opposite objectives, with negative impact on the service level. The proposed methodology uses group analytic hierarchy process ordering (GAHPO) to develop a dispatching rule combining three priority criteria, that when it is compared with other three simple rules, through a discrete event simulation model, presents better performance in most of the selected measures of interest. The study allows concluding that for companies which operate under hybrid environments it is possible to reach equilibrium between market satisfaction and the utilization of available resources.

Keywords : scheduling production systems; MTS; MTO; GAHPO.
