Abstract

Lotsplitting involves the possibility of lot sizes at intermediateprocessing steps being less than the production release of the finishedgood. However, the limited research in this area has not been sufficientto counter the conventional wisdom that lotsplitting 1 is appropriateonly where there are sophisticated control mechanisms, and 2 mayactually create a log jam on machines where there is already abottleneck because of the additional setups required. This articleincludes a lotsplitting provision as an extension of a published studyof alternate routing strategies in a job shop environment. Thelotsplitting rule is very simple and tractable in any job shop itsperformance is compared with the situation where, under identicalconditions, the lotsplitting provision is removed.
