Connecting productivity, capacity and lateness with the help of operating curves [Produktivität, Kapazität und Terminabweichung: Eine Modellierung mit Kennlinien]
Many manufacturing companies consider productivity and lateness as very import performance indicators. In theory as well as in the industrial practice both terms usually are considered isolated. Nevertheless they are linked to each other. A lower than expected productivity often results in an increasing backlog and thus a higher lateness. This paper proposes a way to model the relationship between productivity and lateness with the help of operating curves.
