This dataset contains anonymized data of four packaging robots (secondary packaging stage) of a tablets manufacturing process across an entire year. The dataset was created in June 2021 based on the research activities of the publisher's dissertation. Moreover, the dataset is stored in Excel and contains eleven sheets which contain all required information for capacitated lot-sizing. This data model for capacitated lot-sizing is generic and is able to store information for single- and multi-level problem instances. Furthermore, each tab consists of one table that maps to certain fields corresponding data. In particular, the provided problem instances can be translated into MIP coefficients of a problem instance for the single-level capacitated lot-sizing problem with linked lot sizes and backorders (CLSP-L-B). This four problem instances are used in the article M. Simonis and S. Nickel. A simulation–optimization approach for a cyclic production scheme in a tablets packaging process.
