Basic terminology and techniques for the control of production and service systems including economic order quantity models; stochastic inventory models; material requirements planning; Theory of Constraints; single and mixed model assembly lines ; and lean manufacturing. Emphasis on mathematical models of the interaction between limited capacity and stochastic variability through the use of queueing models to describe system behavior.

In order to achieve the flexible, cost-effective manufacturing systems required to survive in today's volatile, global markets, a thorough understanding of the basic dynamics of factories is essential. This course focuses on understanding the behavior of manufacturing plants and service systems through a thorough, generalizable and fundamental understanding of the factors affecting their behavior. We do this by discussing the basic techniques of production and inventory control in use in industry today, and then focusing on material flow through the plant to examine a number of alternative approaches. The unifying theme is the use of stochastic models to develop an understanding of the interplay between limited capacity and stochastic variability in defining the performance of production and service systems.

Course requires no additional resources as it is already in the Department's regular teaching rotation.

1) Provide beginning graduate students with a strong foundation in widely used production and inventory control techniques.


2) Provide students the skill set to analyze production and service systems with the tools of queueing analysis


Student Learning Outcomes

1) Describe and implement commonly used production control methodologies including Material Requirements Planning, order up to inventory policies, and economic lot sizing procedures to support production control decisions.


2) Apply data-driven analysis methods to evaluate the capabilities of a production line in terms of work in process inventory, throughput and cycle time.


3) Quantify the impact of limited capacity and stochastic variability on the cycle time, work in process inventories and throughput of production lines and service systems.


4) Use queueing models to compute performance estimates for simple serial production lines, and to interpret the results to drive continuous improvement of the system.


5) Use the quantitative tools developed in the class to design and analyze lean manufacturing systems, including kanban for production control, load leveling for production planning, and the central role of variability reduction.


6) Compute effective line balances and sequences for single and mixed model assembly lines.

ABGS Reviewer Comments: Possible clarification of whether or not this course develops queuing theory or assumes this as a pre-requisite. Okay for Board.
reeves (Thu, 07 May 2015 13:36:31 GMT): Approval date should not be Fall 14 - Fall 16 instead... Abbreviated title is too long, must fit 30 characters or less... Enrollment total last 3 times taught cannot have numbers for Fall *16* - this must be Fall *14*... The weighted percentages for course work does not add up to 100%...

ghodge (Thu, 28 May 2015 15:34:14 GMT): changed contact hours from 30 per week to 3 per week; edit syllabus to use the student learning outcomes shown above; syllabus still uses "understand"; add statement to syllabus on PRRs
mlnosbis (Thu, 04 Jun 2015 14:33:37 GMT): Please update the Student Learning Outcomes in syllabus to match those in the CIM form, and add item 14 from the Graduate Course Syllabus Checklist (NCSU Policies, Regulations, and Rules).
