6 Three General Approaches to Production Make-to-stock: Items produced in anticipation of orders, often from a sales forecast (DiGiorno frozen pizza, Miller Lite beer)Make-to-order: Items produced to meet specific customer orders (Boeing 737s for Southwest Airlines)Assemble to order: Final product assembled from make-to-stock items (Dell desk top computer)IDES Manufacturing uses a “Make-to-stock” approach. Production of ore wagons will be driven by a sales forecast.

9 Independent versus Dependent Demand Independent demand - demand for item is independent of demand for any other itemThe TW101A is an example of an independent demand item. It is scheduled for production as a result of a sales forecast.Dependent demand - demand for item is dependent upon the demand for some other itemThe TWB101A is an example of a dependent demand item. It is scheduled to be purchased because of the demand for its parent, the TW101A ore wagon.

12 Lead Times and Lot Sizing The BOM is used to determine how many of each component is required to produce a “parent”. For example, one wagon bed and two axle assemblies are required to produce on ore wagon (parent). Two wheels and one axle are required to produce one axle assembly (parent).To determine the timing and quantity for the purchase orders for the components requires information about lead-times and lot-sizing. This is found in the Material Master File (Item Master): Material Master File for T-W101A (Ore Wagon)Component Description Vendor Lot Size Lead TimeT-W101A Ore Wagon Internal Fabrication LFL 5 DaysT-WB101A Wagon Bed Minnesota Mfg Days T-AA101 Axle Assembly Internal Fabrication Days T-AX101 Axle Sooner Milling Days T-WH101 Wheel Minnesota Mfg Days
13 Master Production Schedule The production plan starts with the Sales Forecast for the month of April. This is broken down into a Detailed Production Schedule for each week. Earlier, we determined that the total demand in April for model T101A is IDES Marketing Department wants these to be available for shipment at the end of each week as shown below. Model Week Week Week Week 17 T-W101A Once this has been agreed to, it becomes the Master Production Schedule (MPS).
14 Information from the Material Master File T-W101A IDES Mfg has determined that the cost effective way to fabricate the ore wagon is to make exactly the number that are required. If 50 are needed, then make 50; If 38 are needed, then make 38. This is called “lot-for-lot” sizing (“Lot Size” = LFL). It takes 5 days to make ore wagons (“Lead-Time” = 5 days).T-WB101A IDES Mfg has determined that the cost effective way to purchase the wagon bed is to order in quantities of 200 (“Lot Size = 200). It takes 10 days to receive an order after it has been placed (“Lead Time = 10 days).

No wagon beds must be received in Week 15. No Planned Order Release is necessary.
