A customer order driven production planning method is developed by combining the buying behaviour of the customers, i.e. the required customer delivery lead time, with the production capacity needed to meet the customer orders. The method can be applied in order to determine the WIP cap and the work-ahead-window of a CONWIP controlled production and can also be used to implement a new market driven production planning. In addition an a priori check is presented to investigate the ability to install a pure make to order system.
