An assemble to order policy considers a trade-off between the size of product portfolio and assembly lead time. The concept of modular design is often used to implement the assemble to order policy. Modular design impacts assembly of products and the supply chain. In particular storage, transportation and production are affected by the selected modular structure. For a fixed number of modules, a stock composition that minimizes the mean final assembly time is difficult to establish. Thisdoi:10.1109/isatp.2005.1511464 fatcat:2dikefwp7vdlhht5vfompeozwm
