ABSTRACT
The article features the Kanban scheduling systems. 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 processes with multiple products. Other methods that work like Kaban are Physical Linking, Broadcast, Materials Requirements Planning (MRP), and Re-Order Point (ROP). Kaban is said to be a transition between MRP and ROP systems and Physical Linkage.

    The model described in this paper is typically applicable to the batch processing industry where a batch of a product is packaged into several container types immediately after manufacture. An example involving 10 jointly replenished items has been solved for illustrating the recommended approach.

    Economic lot sizing and hatching models often assume reliable manufacturing facilities. In this research, we focus on the effects of machine breakdowns and corrective maintenance on the economic lot sizing decisions. Two production control policies are proposed for coping with these stochastic...

    We study the problem of selecting the economic lot size for an unreliable manufacturing facility with a constant failure rate and general randomly distributed repair times. Safety stocks must be used to meet the managerially prescribed service level (the fraction of lost sales) because these...

    Mixed-model assembly lines are used to produce many different products without carrying large inventories. The effective utilization of these lines requires that a schedule for assembling the different products be determined. For Just-In-Time (JIT) production systems, which require producing...
