RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN BATCH SIZES, SEQUENCING AND LEAD-TIMES

Vladimír Modrák, Ján Modrák

Abstract

This paper treats the optimization of production batches by computer simulation in a manufacturing company producing electric and pneumatic actuators. In its introduction part the article deals about a wider context of batch production optimization. Subsequently, the paper presents a procedure for creation of a simulation model in SIMPLE ++ software environment. Based on simulation of a manufacturing process, selected dependences of lead manufacturing time on changes of production sizes was studied. As a result of optimization has been determined optimal minimal value of production sizes, by which minimal lead-time can be achieved.
