Abstract:The production of the construction centre of Tata Steel Tubes in Zwijndrecht is reaching its growth limits. Since there is the feeling that the customer’s demand will increase in the next future, the company wants to avoid losing market opportunities. However there seems to be a strategic conflict between the Sales and the Production departments about how to achieve this goal. An improvement of the order acceptance phase is needed given the presence of the “luxury problem” that during some periods of the year there are more order requests than those that Tata Steel Tubes (Zwijndrecht) can handle. This research is focused to analyse the manufactured products, to identify the inefficiencies related to the calculations of the production process costs and to develop a model that tries to improve the order acceptance phase and to align the Production and Sales departments’ objectives.
