Abstract

In this dissertation we address the issues of selecting and configuring pull production control systems for single-product flowlines. We start with a review of pull systems in the literature, yielding a new classification. Then we propose a novel selection procedure based on a generic system that we test on a case also studied in the literature. We further study our procedure for a variety of twelve production lines. We find new types of pull systems that perform well. Next, we raise the issue of designing pull systems under uncertainty. We propose a novel procedure to minimize the risk of poor performance. Results show that risk considerations strongly influence the selection of a specific pull system
