Analyze the Production System of an Body-in-White System Through Modelling and Perform Bottleneck, Optimization using Simulation Software

2019 International journal of recent technology and engineering  
For a system to improve its productivity, optimizing it, and increase the overall efficiency of a Plant, a bottleneck is a key issue. Bottlenecks influence the efficiency and throughput of the plant. The presented Discrete Event Simulation (DES) model is one the method to analyze problems within the layout. The objective of the paper is to perform bottleneck analysis, optimization of an automobile production plant layout. The virtual environment of batch mode layouts is built by Tecnomatix
