- Running PRO-PLAN over longer time
periods (eg. Looking 48 hours ahead) will reduce the number of production rate
changes. However, this is limited by the
reliability of the mill.
over longer time periods can be achieved by stepping ahead, one
schedule period at a time.
Keep track of all the constraints,
breakdowns, demand changes, etc. to build a
history of operation which can be used to fine
tune the system, eg. Calculating optimal levels.
- PRO-PLAN should be run at least once per shift. A
new solution is required whenever there is a significant change in
demand or constraints.
