A Comparative Simulation Study Of Different Production Control Systems Under The Unbalanced Condition
Due to the growing demand in product consumption, companies try to increase their profit by striving to achieve
satisfactory production capacity under limited resources. This resource, so called “the bottleneck” causes inability of a system
to respond to sudden changes in demand as a result of capacity restriction. Different controlling mechanisms have their own
way to direct materials through the system as well as this bottleneck in which they can affect the speed of material flow. This
study is aimed to improve existing systems and recommend important decision variables, which may influence the
performance of the system under this restricted condition. Results from the study will reveal an interesting outcome, giving the
best alternative for the production system under the bottleneck condition.
