Objectives and Outline
• Lab Objectives – Continue learning basic Simio modeling – Understand the basics of symbols and the default object instance symbol list – Lean about experiment responses – Learn how to use SMORE plots • Lab Outline – Video 1 - Describe the 3-stage manufacturing system to be modeled, build the basic model, and verify the model – Video 2 – Add symbols to the model and learn how to change entity and server symbols as the model runs – Video 3 – Add experiment responses and view/interpret the Response Results (SMORE plots) – Video 4 - Assignment

Serial Manufacturing Line
Parts arrive at the rate of 60/hour.
Machine Machining requires approximately 45 seconds/part.
10% of machined parts require re machining Grind Grinding requires approximately 55 seconds/part.
10% of ground parts are deemed “bad” and are disposed of.
Package Packaging requires approximately 63 seconds/part.

Video 03 – Experiment Responses and Response Results
• A response is a Simio expression that is evaluated at the end of a replication. Responses can have: – Units (e.g., Time) – Objective (minimize or maximize) – Lower and Upper bounds • For our model, we’ll develop responses for: – Server utilization (Machine, Grind, Package) – Average time in system (for the population of Parts entities) – Average number in system (for the population of Parts entities)

• Add Inspection and Rework steps after Grinding – After the grinding process, all parts go through an inspection step. There is a single inspector and the inspection takes between 30 and 50 seconds (uniformly distributed). 20% of the inspected parts are found to need rework (the remaining 80% go to packaging). There are two rework operators and rework takes between 5 and 10 minutes (uniformly distributed). 50% of the parts are still bad after rework and are scraped. The remaining 50% are sent to packaging.
• Modify the model based on the system changes. Create responses for the following: – Server utilizations (Machine, Grind, Inspect, Rework, Packaging) – Time in system for the entire part population – Time in system for good parts – Time in system for scrapped parts – Number of parts in the system – Number of parts in the Input Buffer for the Packaging station (hint – you will need to use the expression editor to “explore” the Package server object components to determine the appropriate expression)
