Modelling Manufacturing Systems

Post by Tom Fiddaman » Fri Nov 13, 1998 1:33 pm

A classic work here is Forresters _Industrial_Dynamics_ (1961). Though it
doesnt directly refer to JIT, MRP, etc., its a must-read. The book is
available from Productivity Press, and one of its models (Chapter 15) is
available on my web site at:

See the "Recent Additions" section. PLE users will discover that the model
incorporates a macro (used to replicate the DYNAMO CLIP function) that
requires more advanced versions of Vensim. Ill try to post a copy for PLE
that replaces the CLIPs with IFTHENELSE statements soon.
