  • Delivery Sequences: FIFO, LIFO, and Others

    Sometimes, when you need a part or product from your inventory, you may have more than one item in stock. Which one do you pick? In this blog post I want to present a few strategies for choosing which item to take. The most famous one is FIFO, but there are more options available. In … Con...

  • Production Sequences: FCFS, EDD, and Others

    In my last post I looked at delivery sequences like FIFO, LIFO, etc. This second post looks at simple production sequences where you do have to deal with limited production capacity. If you cannot make everything at once, you need a sequence in which you process the parts. Introduction As mention...

  • Mixed Model Sequencing – Introduction

    In a mixed model production line, different products may have different work content at different stations. Hence, some stations may need a longer or shorter time depending on the product. This requires careful planning of the assembly line. If this is not taken into account, it may cause signifi...

  • Mixed Model Sequencing – Just Make the Problem Go Away

    Your production line may have different workloads for different product variants. This unevenness causes waste and overburden. In this series of posts I will look at ways to address this unevenness. The first post was an introduction to the topic. This second post will look at ways to simply elim...

  • Mixed Model Sequencing – Adjust Capacity

    Production lines with a product mix may have different workloads at different stations for different products. This can cause waste. In this third post in the series I will look at options on how to adjust the available capacity to ease this problem. In my next post I will look at Mixed Model Seq...

  • Mixed Model Sequencing – Basic Example Introduction

    Your products may have different work content on your production line, which may make your line less efficient. One possible solution is Mixed Model Sequencing, a way to adjust the sequencing of your products to make the average work content stable. In previous posts I looked at the basics, at ho...

  • 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...

  • 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. ...

  • Mixed Model Sequencing – Complex Example Introduction

    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: How To Address Multiple Workload Imbalances In the followin...

  • Mixed Model Sequencing – Complex Example Data Basis

    Having a product mix with different workloads at different stations is challenging. Hence this is getting to be a pretty long series of blog posts on Mixed Model Sequencing. Let’s continue: Get the Quantities to Be Produced The next step is a smaller one. You need to figure out the quantiti...
