Content and topics:
1) Production systems control Description: Introduction to the problem of production systems control. Basic concepts and problems. The distinctions between Push/Pull and Make-to-order/Make-to-stock. Popular production control policies: Finite buffer control policy. Base stock control policy. Hedging point control policy. Kanban control policy. CONWIP control policy. Generalized KANBAN control policy. Extended Kanban control policy. Integral control policy. The problem of production systems analysis and design. 2) Product line design Description: Product family engineering can be defined as a method that creates an underlying architecture of an organization's product platform. It provides an architecture that is based on commonality as well as planned variabilities. The various product variants can be derived from the basic product family, which creates the opportunity to reuse and differentiate on products in the family. Product line engineering is a relatively new approach to the creation of new products. It focuses on the process of engineering new products in such a way that it is possible to reuse product components and apply variability with decreased costs and time. Product line engineering is all about reusing components and structures as much as possible. 3) Description:Production Systems >basic concepts >Stock management (needs and uses) >Diverse Policies and aspects >Production Systems Simulation in discrete event systems
