  • Teaching Notes
Abstract

Aggregate production planning is a critical skill for anyone studying operations and supply chain management. Because most of the world’s manufacturing occurs in China, this case takes place inside a Chinese factory. In this real-world scenario, students use sales, operations, and standard cost data to determine optimum inventory, production, and staffing levels for the plant. The outcome is an aggregate production plan that maximizes on-time delivery, minimizes costs, and abides by Chinese labor laws.
