This is the same as the manufacturing simulation, except the Sector is changed.

5-1

Variation in Pull System-Office

Sector: Office
Concepts Simulated: Variation, Pull System, Kanban, Lean Simulation

This is the same as the manufacturing simulation, except the Sector is changed.

6-1 Office

Batch vs One Piece Flow with Setup-Office

Sector: Office
Concepts Simulated: Batch, One Piece Flow, Work-In-Process, Set-Up Time, Lean Simulation

Note: This is the same as the manufacturing simulation, except terminology and animation has been changed.

2-1 Office

 

 Approvals Process: Series vs Parallel

Sector:  Office or Administrative, Engineering Change Request (ECR) and Engineering Change Notice (ECN).
Concepts Simulated:  TIMWOODS waste:  Waiting, Overproduction, Scrap, Trade-offs

15-1

Cross-Training-Server Farm

Sector: Server Farm
Concepts Simulated: Shared vs unshared queues, cross-training, Lean Simulation.
Concepts Discussed: Travel time.

10-1

Rework-IDEF0 Process Mapping-Mortgage Lending

Sector: Mortgage Company, Office
Concepts Simulated: Rework, IDEF0, Process Mapping, Lean Simulation

Note:  In the model shown, we manually created the simulation model underneath the IDEF0 model.  WE did this to highlight some of the differences in a static model like IDEF0 vs. a dynamic model like simulation.  The JaamSim simulation software used does not natively support IDEF0.

12-1

Takt Time and Line Balancing-Takt Sign

Sector: Manufacturing
Concepts Simulated: Line Balancing, Takt Time, Overproduction, Space, Lean Simulation

3-1

 

Takt Time and Line Balancing-Bakery

Sector: Bakery
Concepts Simulated: Line Balancing, Takt Time, Overproduction, Space, Lean Simulation

NOTE: This simulation is identical to the TAKT! sign manufacturing simulation, except the animation is different.

3-2

 

Here are the simulations that support Six Sigma training.

Quincunx (Binomial Simulator)

Sector: Abstract
Concepts Simulated:  Quincunx, Binomial Distribution

Distribution Sandbox

This simulation is intended for the user to just play around with sampling from different distributions. They can see the impact of combining more than one distribution.

Sector: Abstract

Concepts Simulated: Distributions, Uniform, Triangular, Normal, Exponential, Gamma, Weibull, Erlang, Sampling, Bimodal, Multimodal.

Supports Six Sigma training
