Materials planning activities during production transfer and start-up
Paper in proceedings, 2012

Outsourcing is realised through production transfer. The implementation of a transfer, until the new supply chain reaches steady state, is here denoted ‘production transfer and start-up’ (PTS). The objective is to explore what materials planning (MP) activities are required before and during PTS, in order to ensure materials availability. By linking technology and knowledge transfer and production start-up to production transfers the paper explores how PTS affects materials availability. A multiple case study approach was used. The study shows that there are MP activities specific for PTS, of some are MP activities to handle unexpected events during start-up.
