Schedule production for a firm that produces three products on two production lines using three machine stations. Highest profits will come from finding and managing the bottleneck.
Simulate production of multiple plants and multiple products. Determine the optimum # of products to produce at each plant to maximize production with variability in demand.
Simulate single and multiple queues to explore the impact of variability on customer wait times. Learn how long wait times can occur even when utilization is less than 100% and how long it takes to clear a queue relative to how long it takes to create a queue. Add priority customers to explore how service levels change for average customers.
Simulate a supply chain and explore how holding safety stock at different stages in the chain affects holding costs.
