Abstract:

The report gives a detailed description of a modular simulation model of a production management operating system. The description includes a case discussion of the plant environment, detailed operating data for the computer model, a variable dictionary and Fortran 4 level G program listing, operating instructions for implementing the simulation with OS360, and a commentary on practical experience using the simulator. The simulation is completely self-contained and provides a system for exploratory analysis in sales forecasting, aggregate planning or production smoothing, scheduling and inventory control, and management information reporting. The model is a substantial revision of an earlier simulator. Author
