Compares four production control policies in terms of their robustness against random disturbances such as machine failures and demand fluctuations. A simulation model based on a VLSI wafer fabrication facility is used to test the performance of the policies. Several criteria, including average total WIP (work-in-progress), average backlog, and a cost function that is a combination of the first two criteria, are used to measure the performance
