Analytical loading models in flexible manufacturing systems
It would be difficult to efficiently implement a manufacturing system without solving its design and operational problems. Based on this framework, a system configuration and tooling problem is modeled. The model turns out ...
The general behavior of pull production systems: the allocation problems
The design of tandem production systems has been well studied in the literature with the primary focus being on how to improve their e ciency. Considering the large costs associated, a slight improvement in e ciency can ...
Performance evaluation models for single-item periodic pull production systems
(Palgrave Macmillan, 1996)
A number of pull production systems reported in the literature are found to be equivalent to a tandem- queue so that existing accurate tandem-queue approximation methods can be used to evaluate such systems. In this study, ...
