Abstract:

In this study, the discrete-event system simulation technique was used in order to create smooth work flow on a duvet cover production line. In accordance with this purpose, a model of the work flow of a duvet cover was created, and input data was collected by means of a time study in order to determine the statistical distribution of all operations using Stat-fit for Simul8 software. The model translation phase was executed in Simul8 Software. Then for the purpose of the verification and validation process, actual system data and simulation model outputs were compared statistically using the normality test and Mann-Whitney non-parametric test in Minitab Software. Once the simulation model of the actual system was properly validated, an alternative model considering fewer operators was generated in order to acquire more output and have a smoother line balance. The alternative model was compared with main one by considering the output rate per operator.
