This paper introduces a new technique for estimating cycle time quantiles from discrete event simulation models run at a single traffic intensity. The Cornish-Fisher expansion is used as a vehicle for this approximation, and it is shown that for an M/M/1 system and a full factory simulation model, the technique provides accurate results with low variability(More)
The authors manipulated the extent of distractor interference with learned, mapped responses by presenting distractors to participants (N = 16) before, simultaneously with, or after the target. Interference was significantly less when the distractor preceded the target's presentation by 200 ms than when distractor and target were presented simultaneously.(More)
The cycle-time distribution of manufacturing systems employing dispatching rules other than FIFO can be both highly skewed and have heavy tails. Previous cycle-time quantile estimation work has suggested that the Cornish-Fisher expansion can be used in conjunction with discrete-event simulation to provide cycle-time quantile estimates for a variety of(More)
