Özet

In case a paradigm is introduced to improve the operation of manufacturing systems, it is important to anticipate the performance of the system before expensive and time-consuming implementation. In this study, we provide the use of Petri nets in order to quantify the possible advantage of kitting feeding method in an assembly line through a case study. In particular, Petri nets have been developed through the integration of the resource-oriented and process-oriented modeling approaches and then a detailed quantitative analysis of the current and proposed system have been performed. The results and the analysis obtained from the Petri nets are used to give an idea about the anticipated performance of the proposed system before a possible implementation. Therefore, results can easily be used to aid decision-making.
