Production Scheduling for Rehabilitation Workshops.
Hietala, David A.
This publication examines production scheduling procedures for sheltered workshops. The manual includes three major sections: (1) the importance and benefits of production scheduling; (2) how-to information on performing basic scheduling in the workshop; and (3) answers to the question, What makes production scheduling work? The scheduling procedure presented in this manual has been designed to meet workshop requirements for a production schedule that takes client performance levels, varying work hours, and other factors into account. The guide has two practitioner-oriented goals: to enhance the user's understanding of production scheduling, and to provide the user with basic methods for performing production scheduling in the sheltered workshop. Sample production schedules are included. (KC)
