Abstract

This study deals with the performance modeling of the bar code process in an electronic manufacturing company that produces digital video disk drives for the computer industry. The bar coding process is done to reduce human errors in the placement of components into the surface mounting machines. Besides assisting in improvement of quality it has also helped the warehouse to store the components at the correct location, eliminating chances of misplacing the items and improving the efficiency for the retrieval of raw materials for issuance to production. A simulation model is developed and used to improve the efficiency of the present bar coding station at the warehouse and to reduce the machine downtime at the production line due to material shortage caused by the delay at the bar code process.
