Abstract


Efficiency of processes determines the success of companies competing in
contemporary market. The efficiency of production companies are heavily dependent
on the efficiency of material flow. This is mostly due to high the cost-manufacturing
processes. The efficiency of material flow depends on many factors. One of key factor
is the task environment of company.
The authors focused their research around the integration of planning processes
in companies. They noted that companies with integrated planning processes are less
dependent to changes in the task environment. Continuing with this topic, authors
have developed two models: model of integration planning processes in
manufacturing companies and model of material flow.
The aim of the paper is to verify the following research hypothesis: the efficiency
of material flow in companies with integrated planning process is less dependent on
the volatility of the task environment.
The article presents the results of simulation conducted in the software iGrafx
Process for SixSigma. In the simulation experiment reflects the volatility of the task
environment and planning processes at different levels of integration. The conducted
experiments allowed to collect the results on the efficiency of material flow. The
authors measure the efficiency of material flow in many dimensions: as operational
efficiency (measured by customer service level indicator) and financial (measured by
profitability indicator).
The results were statistically analysed. Authors examined the correlation
between the efficiency of material flow and the volatility of the task environment in
conditions of different levels of integration of planning process. The research
hypothesis was verified statistically with using an ANOVA method.


Key words: planning processes integration, task environment, material flow
efficiency
