Abstract: The paper presents a procedure for supporting the process of production planning in decentralized organizations. A situation is considered similar to that of the Dantzig/Wolfe algorithm: several divisions use scarce production resources that are controlled by the top-management. In contrast to the Dantzig/Wolfe situation, however, all decision makers - on the top - as well on the base-level - are assumed to have more than one goal. Therefore, within the process of production planning a hierarchical negotiation between top- and base-level takes place, in which interpersonel as well as intrapersonel conflicts have to be solved. The well-known interactive MODM of Zionts/Wallenius is modified in order to structure the hierarchical negotiation and to model its hierarchical character. The negotiation results in a feasible resource allocation and in a set of aspiration levels for the goals of the top-level which have to be met by the different divisions.
