Parameter Optimization of Kanban Production System for an Engine Assembly Workshop Based on Witness
To kanban production system of a engine assembly shop as the empirical study, the simulation model of the Kanban production system about designing, running and optimizing are elaborated, which is on the basis of understanding basic theory of Kanban production system. More importantly, using optimization, researched further the effects of different value of safety factor and coefficient of variation of Kanban production system on the impact of the results, and determined the optimal combined scheme.
