Order Quantity Distributions in Make-to-Order Manufacturing: At What Level of Aggregation Do They Respect Standard Assumptions?

Abstract : This paper presents both an analytical and a numerical investigation into the order quantities received by a company in the form of customer orders. A discussion of assumptions regarding the behavior of demand in the form of customer orders from various perspectives within manufacturing planning and control with a special emphasis on the make-to-order environment is presented. A methodological framework for analyzing the behavior of orders and investigate the validity of the assumptions is given. Furthermore, an analytical approach to identify the horizon needed for aggregating orders to achieve a stable demand is developed and tested on data from a real case.
