Abstract

The aim of this work is to present and discuss the possibility of using computer simulation to improve the production flow of sheet metal screws in the carpentry plant. The paper includes descriptive and schematic characterization of the present production system of the plant in one of the Polish companies. Using the Tecnomatix Plant Simulation software, a digital model of the process line was drawn up, mirroring the spatial arrangement of workstations in the production hall and their operators, as well as actual processing times and set-up times of each machine. Simulation was performed to identify bottlenecks in the entire production process, and several modifications were proposed on that basis so as to optimize the workloads of the workstations and increase production.
