A Comparative Simulation of Organizational Strategies in Production Cells Based on Agent Model

Abstract:

Article Preview

In order to simulate the impact of organizational strategy on production cell, agent model of workers was developed and integrated into the production model. An agent-based human-machine collabrative simulation method for production cells was proposed. Structure and modeling steps of the simulation were studied, the proposed simulation method was applied in a motorcycle engine box production cell, and the system performance under the two different organizational strategies ‘specialized division of labor’ and ‘multi-skill team’ was compared. The results indicate that the agent-based simulation method can simulate the organizational strategy in production cells, and provide a new way to study affecting mechanism of different organizational strategies on prodution cells.
