Integrated Control of the Manufacturing System



In this paper, we propose a method to control the entire production process, starting with customer enquiry up to product delivery, for the make-to-order (MTO) manufacturing system. Method for integrated control of the job shop type manufacturing system proposed in this paper aims to facilitate the connection between the two departments and to achieve integrated control of job shop type manufacturing system on the basis of Earning Power (EP) evaluation. It gives a more accurate picture of a firm's profitability than gross income. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the ability of the proposed method on a real case and to illustrate the applicability of mathematical models that were proposed. The main problems for a MTO company manager, i.e. problems related to order acceptance and machine control are solved by the new integrated control method, which is included in this paper.
