This paper describes the methodology of a finite capacity scheduling system which uses an objectoriented discrete event simulation es its engine. The scheduling system is developed as an add-on to an infinite capacity MRP system. The system was developed in partnership with a high-end case goods furniture company. The schedules generated by the simulation-based system will be used to schedule all operations and personnel on the shop floor. The simulation methodology and statistics captured are… CONTINUE READING
