Abstract:This thesis describes the case of supplying the production process of one of the leading manufacturers of heating boilers in the Netherlands. The materials for the heating boilers are provided by multiple suppliers. These wholesalers supply the manufacturer by truck, which causes a large number of trucks delivering materials to the factory. These trucks cannot arrive at the same time, due to the limited capacity at the factory to unload the trucks. This means that the arrival times of all the trucks have to be adjusted to each other. At the same time, it has to be guaranteed that the production does not get to a standstill, due to the fact that the materials for production are not present at the time they are needed. To prevent this, coordination is needed between the arrival times of the trucks and the composition of the corresponding orders. In this thesis a model is developed which coordinates the determination of the arrival times of the trucks and the composition of the orders.
