#### Transcript of Airplane Section - 54053

Model the airplane manufacturing facility
Adapt model characteristics in order to achieve given goals:
Reduce cycle time to 3.5 days
Manufacture a total of 100 airplanes following the probability distribution
At the same time, optimize the number of workers required in order to reduce costs

Objective
1. Model Assumptions
2. Design and modeling
3. Key Performance Indicators Used
4. Verification and Validation
5. Animation
6. Experimentation of alternatives
8. Recommendations

Presentation Agenda
Airplane arrivals happen every 4 calendar days
They are outsourced and can only work shifts 1 and 2 in weekdays
They have a 90% learning curve which can be modelled with Wright’s model
They achieve 100% effectiveness after 10 airplanes have passed through the station. This is because they are taught the process by regular workers
Processing time is calculated with a weighted average
Initially, wings arrive during weekdays and one pair at a time
The simulation run starts at 6:00 am on Monday ends after 100 airplanes have been produced

Model Assumptions
5 work stations modeled as servers except station 3, which is modeled as a combiner
There are 3 different types of airplanes, represented as one model entity with three types
Every group of 8 workers is assigned to one station only and are modeled as resources.
There are two servers, one produces airplanes and the second one creates pairs of wings
Scenarios are activated through referenced properties

Design and modeling
Airplane time between exits
Objective is to reduce it to 3.5 days
Minimize
Worker shifts
Minimize worker on-shift time

Key Performance Indicators Used
1. Designed basic model
1 production line
No extra workers
Airplane types

2. Viewed system animation and output information to verify system characteristics (airplanes moving every 4 days and crane being seized only for first 6 activities) and assumptions worked properly

3. Made appropriate corrections until all conditions were met

Verification and Validation
Basic model, 3 plane type added, comparison between one and two production lines, 1 wing set at a time

Experimentation of alternatives
Basic model, 3 plane type added, comparison between one and two production lines, 2 wing sets at a time

Experimentation of alternatives
No travelled work
As shown before, a second production line is recommended if production time is to be reduced from 4 to 3.5 days

The use of the third shift was avoided as we assumed it was expensive and we found we could achieve the required results through different means. The number of additional workers was minimized.

Two optimal situations were found in order to reduce the cycle time from 4 to 3.5 days.
Shifts 1 and 2 with weekend (close to 3.5 days per plane, under objective)
