Lab Module 03 Serial Manufacturing Line – Part II

Objectives and Outline
Lab Objectives Continue learning basic Simio modeling Learn the event mode for the Source object Learn about buffer capacities for the Server Object Learn about reference properties Learn the basics of dynamic pie charts and status plots Lab Outline Video 1 – Describe the system and develop the initial Simio model. Video 2 – Add buffer capacities, introduce and use reference properties. Video 3 – Described Resource States and added pie charts and status plots. Video 4 – Assignments. Copyright © Jeffrey S.

Video 1 – System Description and Initial Model
Capacity Analysis Parts are continuously available (infinite supply) and there is infinite demand (i.e., we can sell all that we can make) Processing times at each station are exponential with mean of 1 minute. The buffers between stations are finite and we’re interested in determining the impact of buffer size on system capacity. Copyright © Jeffrey S. Smith and Simio LLC | All Rights Reserved

Video 2 – Capacitated Buffers and Reference Properties
M1 M2 M3 M4 Capacity Analysis Parts are continuously available (infinite supply) and there is infinite demand (i.e., we can sell all that we can make) Processing times at each station are exponential with mean of 1 minute.
