Abstract

Discusses new distribution planning techniques which take advantage of state‐of‐the‐art software packages. Compares and contrasts new planning techniques against traditional distribution requirements planning (DRP). Describes how new solutions can truly optimize operations, and provide feasible plans to run the company. Concludes that in order to compete in today’s manufacturing environment, the walls of the factory must be knocked down.
