Mixed Model Sequencing to manage different product types with different work content is tricky. This is now the twelfth post of this series. I knew it would be long, but I never guessed that it would be that many posts. This is almost a book (and will probably be part of a book in the future 🙂 ).
As part of a much larger series on Mixed Model Sequencing, this post describes how to verify the sequence quality. It also describes how to determine the required buffer spaces to buffer against these fluctuations in workload. There may be some wiggle room here. Read on:
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.
Sequencing products due to different workloads of different products at different workstations is tricky. This is now the sixth post on Mixed Model Sequencing, and we finally start with our sequence! Wohooo!
In this rather long series of posts on Mixed Model Sequencing to handle product-dependent workload, we are finally getting to the most complex part: Sequencing of products when multiple stations have product-dependent workloads. Read on:
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.
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.
