Configuring an open pipeline fulfilment system - a simulation study in an automotive context
Brabazon, Philip G. and Woodcock, Andrew and MacCarthy, Bart L. (2008) Configuring an open pipeline fulfilment system - a simulation study in an automotive context. In: International Mass Customization Meeting, June 19-20, Copenhagen.
Automotive producers are adopting multi-modal fulfillment models in which customers can be fulfilled by products from stock, by allocating as yet unmade products that are in the planning pipeline, or by building a product to order. This study explores how fulfillment is sensitive to several parameters of the system and how they interact with different methods for sequencing products into the production plan.
