Abstract

This study focuses on applying a simulation technology to a manufacturing system of a footwear industry in Malaysia.This manufacturing sector needs to be efficient and sound in facing great competition.A simulation model developed in this study will be useful as a decision support tool to evaluate the performance of footwear production system.The model also helps the managements to identify problems, evaluate efficiency of each station and making the right decision.A few scenarios were experimented to find the best configuration of the system being modeled and to investigate a variety of management issues without tampering the actual plant production.This enhances the ability to manage the system, control its capacity, and make better decisions regarding its operation, which in turn improves ability to deliver quality product to customers.ARENAÆ software was used in modeling the system.
