This paper presents results from a research project dealing with the search and investigation of opportunities for productivity improvement at a manufacturing concern involved in fabrication and assembly operations. A SLAM II simulation model was developed to assess the material flow problems and the storage capacity of the system. A queuing network analysis for an automated serial assembly line was also performed using MANUPLAN due to insufficient time and scarcity of accurate production data. Results from the study outline the steps required to improve productivity.
