Learn how Leprino Foods built and implemented a combination of heuristics in various sequences.

Discover how Leprino Foods, the largest producer of lactose in the world, built and implemented a combination of heuristics in various sequences to maximize production capacity, balance supply and demand, combine orders for like products, and reschedule orders forward and backward seamlessly. Get a firsthand look at how the PP/DS heuristic framework can be leveraged to create custom heuristics as you: 

  • Learn how to design and implement a flexible rescheduling heuristic that enables rescheduling parameters to be changed without additional development
  • Find out how to develop and implement a push production heuristic for creating orders for downstream products (multi- and single-level) based on varying criteria
  • Obtain the techniques to build and implement an adjustment heuristic to analyze supply and demand of limiting components and to adjust orders to balance component usage.
