As part of a capacity expansion effort, simulation was used to evaluate the throughput of the current facility and future design options for the manufacturer of pistachios. By using simulation, Paramount Farms was able to select the design alternative that increased capacity at minimal cost. This paper describes the model used and provides details on the analysis performed.
