Richard J. Boucherie, Xiuli Chao, Masakiyo Miyazawa
2003 Performance evaluation (Print)  
In this paper we introduce a new class of queueing networks called arrival first networks.  ...  (push system), in an arrival first network a transition is initiated by the destination nodes of the items and subsequently those items are processed at and removed from the originating nodes (pull system  ...  Application In this section, we model the kanban production system as a pull network and apply our results in earlier sections to analyze it.  ...

Coupling of the synchronization stations of an Extended Kanban system

Leandros A. Maglaras
2015 EAI Endorsed Transactions on Industrial Networks and Intelligent Systems  
In this paper, an approximate method for estimating the performance of the synchronization stations of an Extended Kanban production system is developed.  ...  Unlike other Kanban type systems, the analysis in isolation of each synchronization station gives inaccurate results due to the simultaneous arrival of requests at all stations.  ...  Acknowledgement.The author would like to thank Max Harris for his help in editing and proofreading this paper.  ...
