We describe the application of simulation and statistical analyses to the process improvement of a paint shop within a heavy manufacturing plant. The explicit objectives of this study were the evaluation of throughput relative to loading time, unloading time, and shift patterns, the number of carriers required to maximize this throughput, and the number of(More)
In the aortic stenosis group, the left ventricular (LV) muscle mass index was a good parameter for predicting the prognosis.
