Chart: Illustrating the procedure in SimCar
SimCar is an assembly line where concepts of balancing production lines and strategies of material staging can be demonstrated.
You see an assembly line with five workplaces. The automatic feeder provides workpiece carriers for the assembly line. The components are supplied just-in-time to the assembly line. Certain modules are produced just-in-sequence in pre-fabrication. The finished goods are powdered and then disassembled again. Disassembled components are then returned to the warehouse.
