Simulation Modeling Based on the Object-Oriented for Camshaft Production Line
With the production system of modern manufactures complexity increasing, it is very difficult to establish a practical model to satisfy the current trend by means of traditional methods and theories of modeling. According to IDEF0 modeling method, this paper presents a functional model of the production line object model framework. Based on this, an object-oriented abstraction mechanism is considered to solve the camshaft production line complexity practical situation and an object-oriented Petri nets (OPNs) modeling is proposed. Simulation models are established by using Witness 2008 simulation software based on camshaft production line to analyze the layout and bottleneck of production line, to check the design programs, and to optimize configuration and layout of the production line furthermore. The manufacturing capacity of the line is also discussed in this paper. Finally the corresponding solutions to avoid the existing bottleneck of the line are also discussed in detail.
