FlexSim Case Study Week

Over the course of the next week, a series of interesting and compelling case studies, white papers, or academic research papers will be highlighted in a brand new FlexSim event: Case Study Week.

FlexSim and FlexSim HC have each been the subject of numerous research efforts worldwide, from white papers to academic and trade journals and even higher education theses and dissertations. We’d like to take the time to

Bicycle Manufacturing Case Study

A study of the throughput of a bicycle factory using Flexsim Simulation Software

Overview

An engineering company needed to improve the throughput and lower the cost of manufacturing bicycles. The manufacturing process involved many resources, both human and machine.

Issues to Solve

A finished product in this system consists of multiple parts each manufactured by different machines. Also, many operators are required to transport parts, set up machines, inspect the process, and repair the machines.

This bicycle manufacturing company needed to solve the classic manufacturing and logistics problem of making sure enough parts arrive at the right place at the right time to produce the
