Assembly line feeding: to kit or not to kit?

Veronique Limère UGent, Marc Goetschalckx, Leon McGinnis and Hendrik Van Landeghem UGent (2010) INFORMS Annual Meeting, Abstracts.
abstract
This research focuses on the costs encountered when supplying a part to an automotive assembly line in bulk versus in kits. A mathematical model is presented which includes the operator costs for picking, kitting and internal transport. Sensitivity analysis is performed to investigate the impact of characteristics of the parts and production mix. Numerical experiments will be reported. The research has produced several counter-intuitive results for the assignment policy.
