This interactive presentation will explain synchronous flow, line balancing, and constraint management following by two hands-on exercises. The first exercise will be a line-balancing problem in which apirs of participants determine the number of workstations needed to meet daily production goals. The second exercise, groups of six to 10 participants will optimize a production line in a simulated environment to illustrate the effect of dependent events and statistical fluctuations.
