Abstract

In this paper a simulation model is presented to study different machine assignment policies in a multistage, multifacility and multiproduct production inventory system (MS-MF-MP-P1S). The system considered in the present research is the same as reported in the companion paper by Gunasekaran ei al. (1990). The system is modelled based on the ‘discrete event simulation’ approach. The purpose of this simulation model is to enrich the modelling exercise, validate the results of the mathematical model reported in the companion paper and incorporate more realistic decision-making capabilities, such as machine assignment policies, etc. Numerical results are presented to explain the application of the simulation model.
