A key role of production managers at manufacturing companies is to make economy-based decisions related to production scheduling. If the production is subject to uncertain factors, like human resource or lack of standardization, production planning becomes difficult and calls for advanced models that are tailored to the manufacturing process. This research investigates a real furniture manufacturing system from both managerial and materialflow points of view. Statistical simulation was run on the manufacturing process, where the possible production structures were given. ANOVA analysis was calculated in order to identify those activities that have the most significant influence on the profit.
The food industry is in the crossfire of increasing pressure of competition, consumer demands, and growing importance of ecological sustainability considerations. Life cycle analysis is one of the most important methods for evaluation of environmental effects of food industrial technologies and packaging systems. During the last decades there have been an intense work to collect pieces of information on different environmental aspects of food packaging systems all over the world, but there is a considerable gap between the amount of knowledge and its practical application in decision making on the level of enterprises as well as in the process of determination of environmental protection fee. Application of modern, freely available software frameworks for life cycle analysis offers a favourable possibility for integration of environmental information into managerial and governmental decision making processes. Based on case studies, the article demonstrates the possibilities of utilisation of cumulative environmental burden indicators as well as expert decision-support systems for optimisation of product-portfolio, based on environmental considerations.
