Comparison of Make-to-Order Job Shops with Different Machine Layouts and Production Control Systems
This research project examines the performance of job shops with different machine layouts and production control systems. Job shops examined in this study operate in a make-to-order environment. Results indicate that the material requirements planning order-release-and-due-date-assignment procedure always performs better than that of the period batch control. Cellular layout, however, performs better at a high setup-to-processing-time ratio, while the process layout performs better at a low setup-to-processing-time ratio.
