MODIFICATION OF PRODUCTION PROCESS STRUCTURE AND OPTIMIZATION OF MATERIAL FLOW FOR SELECTED TYPES OF COMPONENTS COMPUTER SIMULATION MEANS

Abstract

Material flow optimizing is a process of finding an ideal level of material continuous movement at minimum cost, time consumption, energy, resources, employees or other criteria, such as length of transport distances, transport volume per time unit, size, capacity, capacity transport unit, transportation costs, use of loading space (volume), duration of transport and so on. The article describes the optimization of material flow in production of two types of components implemented in our partner company Regada, Ltd. Presov. Creating a computer model of current state of monitored process according to basic characteristics showed the unsuitability of this solution. The problem was solved through design and subsequent verification of several alternatives. First alternative was examined by use of technological equipment for the operation. Subsequently, production process was simplified and replacement operations paths were created. The following three alternatives simulate combination of these paths with original paths.
