AN EXACT MANAGEMENT METHOD METHODOPERATIONS, ACTA UNIVERSITATIS OULUENSIS C Tec h n i c a 3 5 7

The framing into demand driven operations is because of the operations research modelling\napproach. The modelling approach requires continuous regressors and an independent response\nfactor. The demand as an operating factor is considered as independent response factor in relation\nto the continuous regressors. The method validation is made along several longitudinal case\nstudies to cover local, global and international industrial operations. The examined operational\nscope is from continuous operations to one-off production. Concerning scheduling, these\nexamined demand driven, industrial operations are considered as open and dynamic, flow shop or\njob-shop operations.\nThe examined managerial scope is from local work management to global industrial operations\nmanagement. The theoretical framework of this study is based on operations management,\nproductivity and controllability engineering. The strategical target is to improve productivity. The\noperational target setting is based on linear goal programming, streamlined demand driven\nmaterial flow and specified operating factors according to this study, Forrester effect diagnostics\nand replenishment models.\nThe engineering of strategical target into exact operational schedule as a task target is hard to\naccomplish, because of the combinatorial dynamic job-shop problem. The purpose of this study is\nto simplify this managerial task. These study operating factors are the heart in constructing a\nDecision Support System for the examined operations, alongside the method’s product flow\ndiagnostics.\nThis operations management method consists of the operating factors, specified in this study\nand these specified factors’ use in constructing a Decision Support System, by engineering current\noperations management system. The construct consist two parts. Firstly, the exact operational\ntarget alignment along this method diagnostics and secondly, the control mechanism according to\nthis operational linear target. The expected managerial benefit is in productivity improvement.\nThe practical benefits are in savings in logistics costs and improvement in customer service, due\nto shorten lead time and exacting delivery.
