ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the automated scheduling system, a software that could allow companies to facilitate production scheduling and meet delivery deadlines consistently. It discusses the systems capabilities, features and functions which include Delivery Date Promise, Automatic Rescheduling and Production Backlog Reporting. With the aid of the system, the author attests that a company's production department could effectively deal with the order schedules.

    Recent empirical studies in several industries have verified that unit costs decline as firms produce more of a product and gain knowledge or experience. This phenomenon is known as the “learning effect.” However, most of the papers assume that the machine is available at all times....

The systems are means for manufacturing production and inventory control that can reduce inventory, remove stockouts, replace massive computers, and slash overheads. In production control, the Kaban also functions on coordinating multi-step...

    This case history, like the one in Part I. comes from a 7000-employee automotive transmission plant. It concerns a centerless grinder department which could be viewed us a parallel processor production system. This case is the second of a two-part series: Part I. in the last issue, detailed an...

    In this paper, we develop the control rules for job shop scheduling based on the Flow Rate Control model. We derive optimal control results for job shops with work station in series (transfer line). We use these results to derive rules which are suboptimal, robust against random events, and easy...

    In traditional scheduling problems, most literature assumes that the processing time of a job is fixed. However, there are many situations where the processing time of a job depends on the starting time or the position of the job in a sequence. In such situations, the actual processing time of a...

    The purpose of this paper is to describe the application of Kaizen tools toward process improvement. The key tools described are those dedicated toward standard work, which is a prescribed sequence of tasks which are balanced to achieve a level production schedule. Data from an actual Kaizen...
