Abstract : A hierarchical approach for the determination of the manpower and machinery configuration for a naval tender machine shop is presented. The application of numerically controlled machine technology is stressed. A mixed integer programming model is developed to support aggregate decisions regarding machinery and manpower allocations. The job shop performance under the suggested aggregate characteristics is tested by a detailed simulation model. An iterative procedure links both models to ensure satisfactory overall performance. A typical naval tender machine shop workload is used in the model implementation. (Author)
