Abstract:AWL-Techniek B.V. builds state-of-the art welding machines and operates mainly in the automotive industry. AWL-Techniek B.V. plans every project individually and execute a capacity check afterwards. This results in planning multiple projects against infinite capacity while capacity is finite in reality. We found out that a clear definition of the tactical planning function: multi-project planning, is required at AWL-Techniek B.V. To improve the current planning process, we redesigned the hierarchical planning framework. We explained what multi-project planning should look like for AWL-Techniek B.V. In order to make multi-project planning succesful, stakeholders ander hierarchical planning levels should interact and integrate with each other. We designed a tactical planning meeting that enables the interaction.
