    An important goal in the analysis of a sequential manufacturing process, such as the production of integrated circuits, is to identify those operations which have the greatest potential for cost reduction. One method for making this identification compares the existing production line to a target line composed of "optimal" operations and then allocating an appropriate portion of the difference in ...

    An automated system has been developed by the Industrial Engineering group at IBM's System Products Division plant in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., to TRACK the serialized bases of any product by comparing customized targets to actual labor claims. The system expedites identification of the specific factor that contributed to an overtarget situation. The concepts of TRACK, which consist of Fortran IV and PL... View full abstract»
