It is well known from queueing and simulation models that cycle times in capacitated production systems increase nonlinearly with resource utilization, which poses considerable difficulty for the conventional linear programming (LP) models used for this purpose. Hung and Leachman (1996) propose a highly intuitive iterative approach where a detailed… (More)
