In this paper we suggest an integrated planning and scheduling framework with a special emphasis on the link between these control levels. Our planning model is generated automatically by performing aggregation on de facto standard product and technology related data in the dimensions of time, resource capacities and operations. The method addresses make-to-order production environments. An industrial case study is also presented, demonstrating how our algorithms work on large-scale problem instances.
