LEVEL PRODUCTION STRATEGY

We are going to find the requirements for the entire period of the plan and also produce the average amount that is needed per month in order to meet the plan.

First we are going to determine the total average requirements per month:

Avg. requirements = total number of requirements – opening inv. + closing inv.

Avg. requirements, therefore = (9000 – 700 + 100)/6 = 1400 units/period

Steps:

  1. Entering the production data
  2. We will then determine the hire/fire rate to get to production level that is desired
  3. All  inventory levels will then be updated
  4. We will also check whether  the inventory is going to run out – If it does recalculate average production needed and go to step 1
  5. Calculate totals for each category
  6. Calculate costs
