Motors EA 111 - Assembly Line Simulation at Volkswagen 2008-36-0252
Volkswagen has built a simulation model of the EA 111 Motors assembly line. It was an important model to study the plant capacity increasing. The study was made in two phases: 500 motors/day and then 1.200motors/day. Using this model, the company could run different scenarios quickly and identify the bottlenecks in the system. So, they could take better decisions in this capacity planning study avoiding future problems in this assembly line.
