Moreover, considering technological tools for handling such variety are crucial for managing efficiently the decision-making in this domain. Therefore, this paper presents a simulation-based model to support the resource allocation decision-making process in a real automotive first-tier supplier UK company.
Results shown that operations management is enhanced across the selected first-tier supplier by reducing the reworks, which leads to achieve its production targets. Keywords: Conceptua...
