Consistency of the Disaggregation Process in Hierarchical Planning

Abstract

This paper deals with the planning process of a manufacturing system in which the aggregation of products sharing similar characteristics leads to a hierarchical structure. It gives special attention to the consistency of decisions in a two-level structure, and presents necessary and sufficient conditions for consistency of a disaggregation procedure. Using a subset of these conditions improves upon the disaggregation procedure proposed by Bitran and Hax (1981).
