Improved Efficiency of Transmission Case Machining-A GPSS-V Simulation of a Transfer Line 760338

The fact that transfer lines constitute the most prevalent means of part production, coupled with the huge price tag they carry, makes it necessary for the management of production facilities to thoroughly assess changes in design and management of transfer lines before implementation. Answers to this assessment require a more sophisticated, powerful tool than that of the traditional, “one-machine” analysis. It is the purpose of this paper to describe this more powerful tool and its application to a specific transfer line which machines transmission cases.
