Using simulation-generated operating characteristics curves for manufacturing improvement
2008 (English)In: Lean Business Systems and Beyond / [ed] Tomasz Koch, 2008, Vol. 257, 195-204 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Improving manufacturing operations is an initiative that all manufacturing firms need to engage in to stay competitive. The needs and ways to improve differ between companies. A thorough understanding of the operating characteristics is required for successful improvement of manufacturing operations. By modeling the plant or manufacturing system in a simulation model and create operating characteristics curves, it is possible to investigate trade-offs and improvement potentials that otherwise would be impossible to quantify by other means of analysis. This paper describes how to manage such an approach by using a simulation model of a manufacturing plant to derive operating characteristic curves. The paper also describes how these operating characteristic curves can be used to improve plant performance.
