Aggregate Planning

 Determine the resource capacity needed to


meet demand over an intermediate time
horizon
 Aggregate refers to product lines or families
 Aggregate planning matches supply and demand
 Objectives
 Establish a company wide game plan for allocating
resources
 Develop an economic strategy for meeting
demand

13-3
Aggregate Planning Process

13-4
Meeting Demand Strategies
 Adjusting capacity
 Resources necessary to meet demand
are acquired and maintained over the
time horizon of the plan
 Minor variations in demand are handled
with overtime or under-time
 Managing demand
 Proactive demand management

13-5
Strategies for Adjusting Capacity

 Level production  Overtime and under-time


 Producing at a constant rate  Increasing or decreasing
and using inventory to working hours
absorb fluctuations in  Subcontracting
demand
 Let outside companies
 Chase demand complete the work
 Hiring and firing workers to  Part-time workers
match demand
 Hiring part time workers to
 Peak demand complete the work
 Maintaining resources for  Backordering
high-demand levels  Providing the service or
product at a later time period

13-9
Pure Strategies
Example: QUARTER SALES FORECAST (Kg)
I 80,000
II 50,000
III 120,000
IV 150,000
Hiring cost = Rs.100 per worker
Firing cost = Rs.500 per worker
Regular production cost per Kg= Rs.2.00
Inventory carrying cost = Rs.0.50 Kg per quarter
Production per employee = 1,000 Kg per quarter
Beginning work force = 100 workers

13-10
Level Production Strategy
Level production
(50,000 + 120,000 + 150,000 + 80,000)
= 100,000 pounds

SALES PRODUCTION
QUARTER FORECAST PLAN INVENTORY
I 80,000 100,000 20,000
II 50,000 100,000 70,000
III 120,000 100,000 50,000
IV 150,000 100,000 0
400,000 140,000
Cost of Level Production Strategy
(400,000 X Rs.2.00) + (140,00 X Rs..50) = Rs.870,000

Chase Demand Strategy
SALES PRODUCTION WORKERS WORKERS WORKERS
QUARTER FORECAST PLAN NEEDED HIRED FIRED
I 80,000 80,000 80 0 20
II 50,000 50,000 50 0 30
III 120,000 120,000 120 70 0
IV 150,000 150,000 150 30 0
100 50

Cost of Chase Demand Strategy


(400,000 X Rs2.00) + (100 x Rs100) + (50 x Rs500) =Rs835,000

13-12
Mixed Strategy

 Combination of Level Production and


Chase Demand strategies
 Examples of management policies
 no more than x% of the workforce can be
laid off in one quarter
 inventory levels cannot exceed x Rs.
 Many industries may simply shut down
manufacturing during the low demand
season and schedule employee
vacations during that time

Aggregate Planning for Services

1. Most services can’t be inventoried


2. Demand for services is difficult to predict
3. Capacity is also difficult to predict
4. Service capacity must be provided at the
appropriate place and time
5. Labor is usually the most constraining
resource for services
