This paper presents a planning system for Lean Manufacturing and is applicable to a variety of manual and automated manufacturing operations. By defining a standard set of Lean Manufacturing metrics, our research sets up a framework for performance measurement and benchmarking. A financial Cost of Waste measure is developed from data on current performance… (More)
Model BuilderTM is a modular, hierarchical, and object oriented modeling and simulation environment for complex systems. Model Builder combines visual interactive simulation with multi-abstraction modeling, extensible semantics, and direct object manipulation, for providing intuitive modeling capabilities.
OBJECTIVES Specimen labeling defects within the perioperative environment are a known patient safety risk that carries the potential for adverse outcomes. These outcomes are a result of errors that occur when unsuspecting providers operate within poorly designed processes with little control over the specimen collection context. Many costly outcomes… (More)
This paper presents an iterative clustering process involving the addition of cells to a proposed cellular design to determine the best assignment of machines to cells. The assignment of machines to each cell is based on material flow clustering techniques with the objective of minimizing inter-cell flows. To determine the performance of the proposed… (More)
