A New Method for the Production Process Optimization Management Based on Evolution Game and Failure Mode and Effects Analysis
To reduce product costs and improve the competitiveness of a enterprise, it is essential to optimize and manage the production processing in an efficient way. However, in many large-scale enterprises, the supervision and optimization of production processing is very complex and effective regularization is often difficult to achieve. To address this issue, a new method is proposed to optimize the production processing in large-scale enterprises in this work. The innovation of the proposed method lies on that it is the first time to use the integration of failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) and evolution game analysis to deal with the issue of production processing optimization. The FMEA was firstly used to reveal the critical factors on the production processing optimization and the evolution game analysis was then applied to finding efficient/inefficient correlated equilibria in the optimization processing. A case study has been carried out in a company to evaluate and verify the new method. The actual situation has been taken into account for the practice evaluation of the proposed method. The analysis results show that the proposed method provides good production processing optimization and hence is feasible and easy to use in practice.
