Pfeiffer Dominik, Terlunen Sebastian, Fischer Jan-Hendrik, Hellingrath Bernd
Flexibility measures are an effective means to cope with a volatile business environment. This paper proposes a procedure for the identification of product-customer-segments and application of appropriate flexibility measures, hence allowing for proper treatment of heterogeneous product-customer groups’ requirements. The concept is evaluated using DES in an industrial scenario.
