Title: Simulation based analysis on ways to improve the factory performance
Authors: Xie, Zhiyu
Keywords: DRNTU::Engineering::Manufacturing
Issue Date: 2008
Abstract: An effective production strategy would lead to efficient production line performance as well as increased profit. However, there is no fixed or generalized solution. In this project, the author treat the n-job, two-stage hybrid flow line problem with 2 different machines in the first station and 7 identical machines in the second station. The objective for this project is to reducing the total cost. The author researched the ways to improve a company’s performance by reducing the total cost from four different aspects (Production batches, transfer batches, dedicated line as well as predetermining a shared product type). After this project, the total estimated saving for company will be S$18988.6 per 42 weeks, which is over 10% of total cost. The research is meaningful and can provide a guide for manufacturing industry.
