Abstract [en]

The choice of an efficient and effective production control mechanism (PCM)along with the appropriate buffer allocation pattern is very important for anyproduction engineer/decision maker when designing a production line in order toattain the required system performance. This project work aims to give an insightwith different PCMs, different buffer allocation patterns and arrangement ofworkers of different capability to help the production engineers/decision makersto select the right mechanism and pattern. This study has been performed withmulti-objective simulation optimisation (MOSO) tool. The result from manyexperiments have shown that the ascending buffer allocation pattern stands outas the prominent choice when the goal was to attain maximum throughput (TP)and simultaneously keeping minimum cycle time (CT) and work in process (WIP).The PCMs and workers imbalance patterns performance is different in differentregions of the Pareto-optimal CT-TP data plots obtained from MOSO so theirselection is depending on the interest of the desired level of throughput togetherwith the limit of cycle time.
