2004_JSIAM_Holistic Manufacturing System Analysis_Preprint

The Toyota Central Research Laboratories have recently developed a number of simulation based methods to understand and predict the behavior of a manufacturing system. The novel idea of these methods is a holistic view of the manufacturing system, i.e. understanding the system by analyzing the relations between the machines instead of analyzing machines independently. This paper provides a framework of the holistic manufacturing analysis and a summary of the developed methods.
