To operate a multiple-product manufacturing system under a CONWIP control policy, one must decide how to assign kanbans to products. With a fixed total number of kanbans in a competitive environment, the goal is to determine their allocation to product types in order to minimize lost sales equitably. In particular, we consider systems in which the products may make multiple visits to the same station with a different processing time distribution on each repeat visit.
