List of simulation experiments

Tut. No. Practice Tutorial Description

To simulate and find out the performance

1 Work Force management and utilization of various elements in the
production line
For conventional production line multiple
resources need to be modelled and
2 Lead time Estimation analysed in a particular given layout.
Estimate Lead time of particular
production line
To Simulate U shaped layout for given
3 conditions and identify the various
U shaped Layout Vs Line Layout
advantages of U shaped layouts over Line
Push production scenario will be given for
modelling and analysis and based on the
4 Pull Production Vs Push Production findings Pull production system need to be
developed, modelled and finally need to
analyse in various operating conditions.
For conventional production line multiple
5 resources need to be modelled and
Line Balancing
analysed in a particular given layout. Line
balancing has to perform on given layout.
Model and analyse batch production
6 Batch production Vs Continuous
layout and continuous layout for a given
product and suggest the optimal system.
