For lean practitioners, lean simulation games play an important role at the early training stage. The interactive simulation effectively conveys lean concepts via semi-hands-on experiences in a classroom setting; however, it cannot be performed with fewer than minimum participants on site....
Levelling the workload of resources in the planning of make-to-order production can be realised through scheduling manufacturing activities within the timing constraints of each order. Such levelled schedules may be generated by Aggregate Production Planning (APP). This paper presents and...
Traditionally, the assembly of large make-to-order products has been organised as assembly cells, where the mainly manual assembly is performed by a group of workers. This is a flexible arrangement and thus suitable for variable products. An assembly line facilitates worker specialisation, work...
The approach of Competence-cell-based networks presents a special challenge to the planning and design of logistics structures and production plants. On the one hand a highly flexible and fast planning and design is required. On the other hand this is contrasted by the need for simple, rational...
Computer aided visualisation and simulation enables early evaluation of important design parameters of future products and production systems. Typically, humans affect the system performance, and in order to achieve the expected system efficiency ergonomics needs to be considered in the design...
This paper describes the adaptation of process plan with alternatives, through an operation-based time extended negotiation protocol for decision-making about real-time routing of job orders of parts composed of machining operations in a job shop environment. The protocol is modified from the...
With continuing need for high throughput Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (AS/RS), many researchers have studied a problem of sequencing storage and retrieval requests processed by the Storage/Retrieval (S/R) machine to maximise the system throughput. These studies assume that each...
