Abstract : The approach taken was to build a simulator of apparel manufacturing tool and to measure the impact that such a tool would have on actual operations. The simulator runs on top of a real-time system which continually monitors the progress of operations on the shop-floor. The real-time system collects a wide variety of information as it tracks bundles of both making progress from workstation to workstation. The real time systems monitors and reports on information such as operator efficiencies, start and stop times of operations on each bundle. the amount of work produced by each operator, which operator is assigned to each workstation, and the status of each bundle, cut and order.
