Abstract

A comparative evaluation of push, pull and a combination ofpushpull production strategies for a multiproduct twostage productionsystem is presented. A mathematical model is developed to determine EBQand optimal batch splitting and is applied to a case of a manufacturingcompany producing hard disk parts. The results obtained are comparedwith the existing practice. It is shown that a push policy results inthe highest total system cost while the pull system the least,with the hybrid policy inbetween. It is recommended that a switchoverto optimal hybrid pushpull policy is called for from the presentnonoptimal push policy. Cost reduction potential for such a switchoveris estimated.
