Hybrid Simulation for Complex Manufacturing Value-chain Environments

Authors
Barbosa, C; Azevedo, A;

Publication
Procedia Manufacturing

Abstract
Hybrid simulation is nowadays a valid alternative for studying complex manufacturing environments. Some challenges exist in this context, as the ambiguous use of terms and definitions in the literature; and the demanding skills required for developing hybrid models. A structured literature review provides an overview of the use of hybrid simulation in manufacturing business performance and its most important advantages and drawbacks. A classification scheme for the 51 analysed papers is presented, including interfaced, sequential, enrichment, and integrated taxonomies. © 2017 The Authors

Evaluation of improvement actions impact on manufacturing operational performance

Authors

Publication
IEEE International Conference on Industrial Engineering and Engineering Management

Abstract
Due to the current demands from the market, technological improvements and action of competitors, manufacturing companies are pushed to compete in shorter product development cycles. This poses a great challenge, as the conventional product development cycle is shortened. Hence, companies are forced to introduce some improvement action plans and adopt certain manufacturing operational strategies to remain competitive and achieve a good market share. Due to the importance of this topic, in this paper we revise the current manufacturing improvement plans in the literature, to establish the basis of our future research work. The findings of this work point towards the need to develop a system that integrates the evaluation of the manufacturing improvement plans in the future overall performance of the manufacturing plant and aid in the process of decision-making. © 2015 IEEE.

Operations strategy frameworks in manufacturing, services and product-service systems

Abstract
Many definitions for operations strategy appear in literature. Yet, after analysing some of these important definitions, there were some common denominators: planning and decision-making. It is through correct operations strategy planning and decisions that organizations achieve competitive edge, and for this reason, the subject is of major importance. In this paper we present a review on operations strategy (OS) in manufacturing, services and product-service organizations. Through the literature analysis we found several differences and fewer similarities between OS in manufacturing and services and also the positioning of product-service systems (PSS) OS, comparing to OS in manufacturing and in services. Our foremost contribution is providing a literature review and an analysis on the content of the OS frameworks. © 2015 International Institute for Innovation, Industrial Engineering and Entrepreneurship - I4e2.
