This paper presents results of a large-scale simulation study on spare parts demand forecasting and inventory control to select best policies within each SKU category. Simulations were conducted over 10,032 SKUs of an automaker that operates in Brazil, considering six years of demand data. Literature review drove the selection of different models simulated.(More)
This paper provides a simulation model to study the effect of the work-in-process control on due date performance in job shop environment. The due date performance is measured by both the number of tardy jobs and the total tardiness. The simulation runs include different shop configurations (flow shop and general job shop), workloads and sequencing rules.(More)
This paper describes the use of spreadsheets combined with simple VBA code as a tool for teaching queuing theory and discrete-event simulation. Four different cases are considered: single server, parallel servers, tandem queuing, and closed queuing system. The data obtained in the simulation run are conveniently stored in spreadsheets for subsequent(More)
