Functionalities of production-inventory control systems

Each system was developed with a specific production environment in mind, and it would therefore be naïve to assume that these systems apply to any situation. Most factories would benefit from a hybrid system which carefully weighs functionalities from different systems to fit the problem at hand.

We consider three well-known production-inventory control systems: material requirements planning, just-in-time and bottleneck scheduling.
