|Abstract: ||Given the global pressures and demanding
requirements for high value added electronics
manufacturing, it is vital to make the right decisions on
the shop floor. One of the main shop floor level decisions
in the domain is the selection of the most appropriate
scheduling strategy for the available manufacturing
system. Simulation has proved to be a powerful decision
support tool. However, very few studies have used this
potential to support the evaluation of scheduling
strategies in a manufacturing context. A component-based
simulation tool to evaluate the performance of scheduling
strategies on a particular system is presented in this paper.
The component based structure of the simulation tool
allows the main problem requirements to be addressed.
An example, based on a real company, illustrates the
nature of the simulation results and the kind of support
that can be obtained|
