This book gives an analysis of capacity performance of multi-stage, multi-product production systems. Special attention is given to performance criteria like throughput, average work-in-process and average throughput time. A model is developed to represent such production systems. A development of a single-product continuous product-flow model is given along with an analysis of the model for different layouts and different control-systems. Attention is given to layouts like flow-lines, assembly/disassembly-systems, buffersharing networks and control systems like base stock control, workload control, control by finite buffers and control by reorder point systems. The model and analysis techniques are applied to three different multi-stage, multi-product case situations.
