Abstract

In the given study we have undertaken a comprehensive analysis on the simulation of different products emerging out from the assembly line. The study starts from collection of point of view of different authors from various studies. Then it has been found that the system of distributed manufacturing can be used to prepare a model that can be simultaneously simulated. The introduction of systems under a bigger system is introduced for accommodating the complete supply chain in a single diagram. The system is then implemented with the help of Petri NET software and the operational parameters are analysed by the output. The case study undertaken is of a cable manufacturing firm in which the methodology suggested is implemented and it is validated that such a methodology can help on controlling the different systems from a single point of control.

Research Methodology

In this framework we have suggested the division of system into various sub systems and then development of output parameters can be done for each unit which can be combined to give the overall scenario. The role of simulator can be very encouraging in these aspects since the effect of maintenance charges, quality costs, supplier upliftment can be simulated with the help of these parameters since all these parameters define production scenario which in turn greatly affects the maintenance charges, quality costs, supplier upliftment.
