Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to explore the particular issues concerning the design and implementation of workload control (WLC) in the management of a customised high touch time MTO (Make to Order) environment involving rotary moulding. The system embraces key workload control features, including order acceptance and controlled release incorporating time buffer management for priority control. The design and implementation over a two year period has offered opportunity to determine the applicability of S-DBR based WLC. The resulting system is integrated with a Sage ERP system and specifically designed to support operational decision making whilst providing visibility to the owner manager.
