Mixed Model Sequencing – Complex Example Sequencing 2

In this seventh post on Mixed Model Sequencing, I will finish the sequencing of the more complex example with Product-Dependent Workload and Mixed Model Sequencing. This is now the tenth post in this series. I knew this sequencing topic was demanding, but even I am surprised how much there is to cover. Thanks for staying with me, and read on.

Mixed Model Sequencing – Basic Example Sequencing

Mixed Model Sequencing is one way to handle products that have different workloads on a production line. In this post I continue to describe the basics if there is only one station where products vary in workload. This is part of a (rather long) series of posts on product-dependent workload.  In my next posts I will go into situations where multiple stations are affected by product-dependent workload.

Mixed Model Sequencing – Basic Example Workload and Buffering

Adjusting the production sequence is a popular way of handling production lines with a product-dependent workload. This post is part of rather long series on Mixed Model Sequencing. In the last post I discussed the basics of sequencing and the calculation of the takt time. This post describes the basics of adjusting workload and buffering – but still for a simple case of only one imbalanced station. Subsequent posts will get more serious with multiple imbalances. But let’s continue with our simple single imbalance example. Continue reading Mixed Model Sequencing – Basic Example Workload and Buffering
