Abstract

This paper provides a simulation model to study the effect of the work-in-process control on due date performance in job shop environment. The due date performance is measured by both the number of tardy jobs and the total tardiness. The simulation runs include different shop configurations (flow shop and general job shop), workloads and sequencing rules. As expected, the results reveal that due date performance is highly dependent on the work-in-process, particularly after the system reaches saturation. Nevertheless, the model is very useful to show job shop managers the effect of the work-in-process control in the due date meeting performance.
