Abstract

This paper describes the development of a queueing model for a policy called Dedicated Cell Loading (DCL) which utilizes cross-trained workers, transfer batches and a temporary dedication strategy to control the movement of part batches through a manufacturing cell. A two stage open queueing network model is used with the parameters for each stage being estimated based on the worker movement and part transfer protocols within the cell.
