Abstract/Description:

We consider a system with two discrete production lines where the output of each one can fulfill the demand for the same type of product. An example to this case is the hybrid-manufacturing environment, where a company manufactures new products and remanufactures returned products to meet the demand. The interarrival times for demand occurrences and service completions are exponentially distributed i.i.d. variables. Here, a single stage pull production control with two types of kanbans is utilized to model the system where a kanban type is dedicated for either manufacturing or remanufacturing process.
