Abstract

A simulation-based dynamic operator assignment strategy is proposed considering machine interference in solving an integrated circuit moulding operation problem. The strategy iteratively solves a floating manpower operator-assignment problem between simulation-based diagnostic study and operator assignment decision. Given current-state information, it provides a means for system performance evaluation. It searches a satisfactory solution for both cycle time and service level performances by using floating manpower method. A structured experimental design is used to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed methodology. Empirical result show promise for the proposed methodology in solving a practical applications. Finally, the system implementation constraints from both hardware and management problems are addressed.
