Mixed model manufacturing systems are increasingly being used to meet global competition by providing a broad variety of products to customers. The increase of product variety adds more complexity to production processes, thus leading to a negative effect on the performance of production processes. Therefore, it is of great interest to effectively measure such complexity, and to quantify its effect on manufacturing system performance. In this paper, a set of complexity metrics are proposed for… CONTINUE READING
