Abstract

This study investigates the consequences of implementing Toyota Production System (TPS) in the local automotive parts manufacturer production line. The production line consisted of three different processes and two inter-process buffers. A verified base model was created using WITNESSTM computer simulation software. Reducing WIP is the primary objective of the study focusing on varying the sizes of inter-process buffers. Results generated from the simulation indicate that reducing inter-process buffers simultaneously would produce significant effect in reducing WIP compared to reducing each buffer independently.
