This paper presents a heuristic that could be used to plan the activity of a system in which resources are allocated to tasks at hand for a number of periods. The proposed method uses a backtracking approach to minimize the inventory levels. To achieve this goal, for the “one machine - several products” case, the heuristic combines the backtracking approach with a procedure that allocates the time available in one period to all products that must be produced in that period. The paper presents the results obtained with two allocation methods. The first one, is of a greedy type while the second one is based on a solution for the well-studied knapsack problem.
