We describe the application of simulation and statistical analysis to the problem of optimization of palletization in a production job shop. These analyses enabled management responsible for the production of this job shop to optimize the number of pallets, the size (carrying capacity) of the pallets, the associated workin-process levels, and policy regarding level of safetystock kept on hand at various places in the job shop. Additionally, management also confirmed throughput levels for… CONTINUE READING
