Abstract:These strategies are compared in a similar manner for a more complex example. A portion of an actual consumer electronics assembly line is simulated. The objective in this example is to maximize throughput. Similarities and differences exist between the two examples. Results suggest that no strategy dominates all others under all the conditions analyzed, although CONWIP is shown to be a robust, consistent, and practical approach. In many cases, no significant difference in performance of selected strategies can be proven. In addition, the manufacturing objective and other factors within the environment, as well as strategy, are shown to have an impact on a system's performance. This study is significant for manufacturing managers who are dissatisfied with MRP or JIT and are seeking an alternative.
