Finite Capacity Scheduling: Management, Selection, and Implementation

Finite Capacity Scheduling: Management, Selection, and Implementation

"Even the best companies tend to be reactive because of poor scheduling. Often, their employees prefer being reactive because they are so used to operating in this mode. The shoot-from-the-hip approach is very common in American culture. The West was won with a six-shooter, and many shop floor managers continue to function in the shoot-from-the-hip mode. While there are some conditions that might benefit from the shoot-from-the-hip philosophy, modern competitive manufacturing is not one of them."
