Description

Simulation Understandings: Modules 4 & 5

These modules deal with bottlenecks and suppliers.  From watching the module you can see that how we improve our system can have a profound impact on our ability to process products.  By trying to improve the system we may actually have created bottlenecks in the system. The following questions should help you understand your layout and whether it is functional or focused please take some time to discuss them and note your answers.

  1. Can we identify any bottlenecks in our processes?
  2. If we can identify them, where are they located?
  3. How are our bottlenecks impacting our inventory and costs?
  4. How can we reduce the impact our bottlenecks are having on our processes?
  5. Go over the bottleneck rules that are shown in the video and see which of these we can apply to our bottlenecks.

Now on to our suppliers:

  1. Do we control our suppliers?
  2. If we do, how do we control them, and is this the most effective way of doing so?
  3. How do we determine levels of inventory?
  4. What would be the best possible way of controlling our suppliers and still keeping the appropriate amount of inventory?

By completing the above questions you should have gotten a clearer picture of your processes and how they are impacted by the different strategies you employ in processing.  If you went through all the questions you should have an understanding of how your processes are working and how to improve them. Thank you.
