Many companies measure their logistic performances using several methods. As a consequence, various sets of indicators can be found in practice and in the literature. In particular, the same event can be measured in different ways, so that the relative performance is sometimes totally different....
An effective system development paradigm and its associated design tools can streamline the production of flexible manufacturing systems. In view of the technological advances in developing complex manufacturing systems, a framework and its associated graphical development environment are...
Discrete-event simulation (DES) and disturbance reduction techniques are a combination for improving efficiency in manufacturing systems. The DES modelling allows different tests to be carried out by step-by-step alteration. The use of manufacturing improvement techniques should be combined for...
Dispatching rule-based scheduling is a kind of dynamic scheduling commonly used in real world applications. Because of the lack of scheduling objective, it cannot optimize the specific performances at which shop managers aim in the current production period. To overcome the limitations of the...
The aim of this paper is to explore and represent the dynamic relationship between total quality management (TQM), corporate strategy and resultant business operations. In particular, the paper seeks to determine the impact of TQM at the strategic level and how business operations are...
This paper discusses the experimental work in modelling uncertainty under a multi-echelon enterprise resource planning (ERP)-controlled manufacturing system. A new method known as part tagging (Ptag) is successfully implemented in a material requirements planning (MRP) planning architecture,...
Job sequencing is an important stage in any hierarchical production control model, especially when a real‐time dispatching rule is not employed. The problems become complicated when constraints, such as different parts requiring different operation processes at different machines and with...
