There is a vast body of literature on analysis and modelling of batching. This paper aims to provide a structure for batching decisions that can help in positioning batching research and models with respect to issues pertinent to goods-flow management. The basis of the structure is a distincton of batching issues as related to three decision levels : (I) process choice/design, (II) activity planning (aggregate planning and activity programming), (III) activity control.
