This paper addresses the problem of capacity estimation of a multi-product production line composed of m unreliable workstations and ( m - 1) intermediate buffers. A simulation-based experimental design methodology is proposed to improve the performance of this flexible production line, which is expressed as the cycle time. The modelling approach integrates, in a more representative manner, the many parameters that impact the capacity of the manufacturing system. These are: workstation failure… CONTINUE READING
