Abstract: Over the years, much attention has been given to the study of the pull system to reduce in-process inventory and improve work efficiency. Kanban Control Systems are widely used to control the release of parts in multi-stage manufacturing systems operating under a pull mechanism. Considerable research has since been on study of the individual manufacturing systems for multi stage and single product. However, not much research has been done for comparison work. The aim of this research is to compare the performances of Base Stock Control System (BSCS) ,Traditional Kanban Control System (TKCS), Generalized Kanban Control System (GKCS) and Extended Kanban Control System (EKCS) in the context of simulation modeling. In this study, we analyze the performance of various control policies for a single-product multi-stage manufacturing system. The manufacturing system considered in this research use a single-card kanban system, where the transportation of materials between the different work-centers is controlled by production kanbans. Demands that arrive to the system are satisfied from the finished goods inventory whenever possible and are backordered otherwise. Performance measures are number of backorders, average waiting time of backordered demand and average work in process.
