Integrated Production and Logistics Planning
Keywords:MRP, production planning, transports planning, integration, MLRP
Industrial planning systems have undergone considerable evolution in recent decades, starting from MRP, then ERP, and finally advanced planning and scheduling systems (APS). This evolution took place by dint of the evolution of information and communication technologies, and also due to industrial stakeholder integration tendency forming global supply chains in order to optimize costs and lead times. The purpose of this article is to present a new integrated short and medium term planning approach for upstream logistics (necessary for procurement) and production, this new approach is the MLRP "Manufacturing and Logistic Requirement Planning ". We introduce in this paper a new bill of materials structure that is adapted to the MLRP, and then we present the proposed algorithm which allows determining production and logistics needs for all bills of materials components. Finally, we present the proposed information system that implements the MLRP.
