Abstract

One of the controversial issues in manufacturing systems is bottleneck. Managers and engineers are trying to find methods to eliminate the bottlenecks and waiting times in the production line. More over the manufacturing companies are striving to sustain their competiveness by decreasing the bottlenecks, total cost and increasing the productivity. The objective of this study is applying the computer simulation to analysis the production line bottlenecks. To achieve this goal a color manufacturing line was selected as a case study and the basic application of arena 13.9 software. Finally the some modifications in the simulation model are proposed to improve the production line as well as to decrease the bottleneck.
