dc.description.abstract Discrete simulation and computer modelling serve as an effective means for the analysis and optimisation of manufacturing systems. Simulation and computer modelling tools provide a quantitative means for the analysis of a current manufacturing process as well as evaluating alternative designs and/or systems. This paper will present an analysis and optimisation of a new manufacturing system for front suspension axle assembly process utilising computer modelling and simulation. This paper is sponsored by one of the original equipment manufacturers axle assembly plant in North America. The main objective of this paper is to determine the optimal offline buffer locations for a front axle assembly line to achieve maximum throughput within budget limitations or constraints. en_US
