An algorithm is presented for identifying the projection of a scheduling model's feasible region onto the space of production targets. The projected feasible region is expressed using one of two mixed-integer programming formulations, which can be readily used to address integrated production planning and scheduling problems that were previously intractable. Production planning is solved in combination with a surrogate model representing the region of feasible production amounts to provide optimum production targets, while a detailed scheduling is solved in a rolling-horizon manner to define feasible schedules for meeting these targets. The proposed framework provides solutions of higher quality and yields tighter bounds than previously proposed approaches.
