Abstract

Production planning is a highly complicated and time consuming process and demands experienced production managers to handle it. This paper discusses the development of an intelligent production planning system in the precast industry as a possible alternative to traditional operation research methods. The intelligent production planning model is a computer- based factory simulator which automates the process of planning using factory attributes and intelligent production rules. An industrial case study has been conducted to validate the model and the knowledge rules. The paper has concluded that the intelligent system is a practical and considerable managerial tool for exploring and testing managerial options open to production managers. 1 I
