Abstract or Summary
  • SMEs with high-mix and low-volume (HMLV) operations face special challenges when implementing lean manufacturing practices due to scarcity of resources and ever changing market conditions. This is especially critical for manufacturers that need to deliver orders to a high variety of customers with varying time response requirements. The objective of this study is to present a holistic approach to design hybrid-dynamic manufacturing systems (HDMS) for HMLV SMEs. The HDMS is introduced as a case-study, for an Oregon-based laboratory equipment HMLV manufacturer. The HDMS was utilized to incorporate hybrid lead times using an express line for high production volume products that would run in parallel with the regular production stream. The performance of the designed express line is modeled and validated with historical system performance. The simulation results indicate that the lead time of identified product models can be reduced without affecting the rest of the production flow. The case study shows that for HMLV SME manufacturers, a HDMS can provide a solution to implement hybrid lead times into their production lines.
