This contribution discusses the measurement of (in-)stability of finite horizon production planning when done on a rolling horizon basis. As examples, we review strategic capacity expansion planning, tactical master production scheduling, and operational capacitated lot sizing. An iterative method to dampen the nervousness is presented.
