An Available-to-Promise Allocation Decision Model Based on Assemble-to-Order Supply Chain
The main content of this research is about the ATP (Available to promise) allocation problem based on Assemble-to-Order Supply Chain. In the case of Multiple-Suppliers, the synchronous planning method is selected to discuss the supply plan and demand plan and an ATP allocation decision model adapted to ATO supply chain production environment is established. Based on the equal-weight combination forecasting method, the forecast demand was input into the ATP distribution model. The mixed integer linear programming method was adopted to solve the calculation and analyze the cost and benefit. Finally, the optimal ATP distribution scheme was obtained.
