Abstract:

The development of a FORTRAN based simulation program which can be used to study and analyze any multi-product manufacturing system is the topic of this paper. A general one step Markov transition matrix is developed to generate each production units output. A detailed economic and statistical study of the manufacturing network is available as program options. The program was validated by using hypothetical conditions and assumptions on the Armys new system of munitions production SCAMP. Author
