Abstract

Does the use of DES differ when implementing novel production processes and technologies in the manufacturing industry? Addressing this question, this paper explores the use of DES during the design of production systems implementing process innovations. Data is drawn from a qualitative-based case study in the heavy vehicle industry where a process innovation was implemented in the form of a multi-product production systems. The findings of this study reveal novel findings related to the purpose and challenges in the use of DES models during the design of production systems when implementing process innovations.
