open in viewer

Insufficient production capacity and backorder buildup motivated EMD Millipore to examine its Opticap XL filter encapsulation process. Through analyzing this process and interviews with key stakeholders our team confirmed the changeover process as a production bottleneck. One way to potentially reduce changeover time is through line dedication by product characteristics. In this project, we built a discrete-event simulation model to evaluate different dedication scenarios and ultimately recommended dedication by capsule size.
