Abstract

An examination of the use of both frozen and replanning intervals for planning the master production schedule for a capacity-constrained job shop is presented. The results show that forecast error, demand lumpiness, setup time, planned lead time, and order size have a greater impact on the mean total backlog, total inventory, and number of setups than the frozen and replanning intervals.
