This paper examines the relationship between lot release variability and queuing time in a simple six operation manufacturing process line operating under a push-type lot release policy. Five different lot release strategies are modelled, based on two different operation capacity scenarios. The performance resulting from the departure variability caused by each of the release strategies is analyzed, as well as the queuing impact due to capacity.
