PROCESS

Process

Each glass factory has one or multiple furnaces producing liquid glass that continuously flows to several feeder lines, which transform the liquid glass into bottles. Planners need to decide which batch of bottles is going to start and end at which line. Respecting the production sequence of different bottles on the different lines is a major challenge for the planning department. The sequence in which bottles are produced must be managed such that the size of a bottle produced on one line should not increase too fast for the system to adjust.

A detailed production schedule is generated one month in advance, with each batch assigned to a specific furnace, and each order targeted to meet its commercial due date.

When making a production plan, several require- ments must be taken into account. The total amount of glass consumed by the feeder lines should be as close as possible to the maximal capacity of the furnace throughout the day.
