Scheduling of Batches in Discrete Mfg


Hi all Experts,

I am having problem in scheduling of Batches in Discrete Mfg. Plant capacity is 200MT/month. Process includes 9 operation. Each operation are having different nos of Work centers. Batch size for each operation is 1900kg. It is Make to stock process. When I do scheduling through Routing for Month Quantity say 200MT, Last Operation starts after six month. In house Prod Time for 1 Batch to finish is 5.6 Days. Every 4 Batches should come. But in scheduling whole quantiy 200MT is processed first then it goes to 2nd Operation. So this takes more than six months to start last operation. I tried combining Splitting and Overlapping with go ahead qty 1900 (Batch Quantity). Time has reduced to 40 days to start last operation. But I want to start the last operation after 5.6 Days only irspective the total quantity given for scheduling. How to solve this Problem? Please u can send me answers to
