Abstract

SANTORO, Miguel Cezar  and  MORAES, Luiz Henrique. An engine assembly line simulation. Gest. Prod. [online]. 2000, vol.7, n.3, pp. 338-351. ISSN 0104-530X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-530X2000000300010.

Simulation has been proven to be very useful on the solution of complex problems, like those ones relating product-oriented manufacturing systems (assembly and manufacturing lines). This paper presents an application concerning design evaluation of a new engine assembly line at Ford of Brazil.

Keywords : capacity planning; product-oriented manufacturing systems; engine assembly line; line balancing; manufacturing simulation.
