AbstractThis paper compares several different production control policies in terms of their robustness to random disturbances such as machine failures, demand fluctuations, and system parameter changes. Simulation models based on VLSI wafer fabrication facilities are utilized to test the performance of the policies. Three different criteria, namely, the average total WIP, the average backlog, and a cost function combining these measures, are used to evaluate performance. Among the policies tested, the Two-Boundary Control policy outperforms the others.
