Title: Modeling and analysis of manufacturing system to improve cycle time and utilization performance
Authors: Chen, Yuhui.
Keywords: DRNTU::Engineering::Manufacturing::Production management
Issue Date: 2009
Abstract: This project aims to study the manufacturing system through modeling and analysis. It is about searching for different ways and solutions in order to improve the cycle time and utilization of a production. The project is built upon on the previous IA experienced by the author in the Shanghai Venture cooperation. All the issues faced during the internship period will serve as an actual case study of the production environment which enables the author to utilize this knowledge to solve some of the problems concerned. The author will delve deeply into the physics of the manufacturing system by conducting research studies at the collaborating company (Singapore Venture cooperation), reviewing precedents or prior work assignments and also doing literature review to determine how different factors will affect the manufacturing system in various aspects such as throughput, cycle time, utilization, etc. In addition, the author will be using a simulation program to simulate the proposed solution in order to understand the pros and cons of it before implementing it on the production line. Thus, by analyzing the scenarios in whole and diagnosing the issues that occurred, the author is able to propose some practical and economical solutions for the problems that arise in the duration of this project.
