Theme II & III

  

Integrated Value Chain

The specific constraints of the scheduling and control technologies are to be defined by the “physical” structure as well as the productive strategies (make-to-stock, make-to-order) of the value chain. Major efforts in that domain have been invested over the past 20 years. The Toyota production system is an example of a holistic approach in designing coherent logistics and manufacturing systems. This effort of viewing both the manufacturing and the logistic systems together is new in the Canadian forest products industry. Typically, as the machinery is very costly, the investment decisions are taken first and then it becomes a constraint to the planning systems.

In the forest products industry, very little effort has been invested in trying to define a set of “production systems” that could drive toward greater agility. The objective of this theme is to provide the tools and methods to help the reengineering process required to move ahead and deploy agile and resilient value chains, especially in a context where mass customization, integration and collaboration may be the keys to greater competitiveness in the modern bioeconomy.
