A decision model for line feeding

Boekbijdrage - Boekabstract Conferentiebijdrage

Different ways of line feeding are practiced in industry: bulk stocking at the production line is replaced by kitting and sequencing to decrease the amount of parts circulating on the shop floor. Literature is found about the different practices, but no model seems to exist covering the influence of line feeding methods on the whole in-plant logistic system, i.e. the storage system, the transportation system and the operator workload. Future research will be directed towards the development of a holistic model covering all of these aspects.
