We assume that the facil ity design issue is settled, i.e., the location and the layout of the facility as well as the capacity ofthe three main resource types of the company are determined. These resource types are the engineering department, the fabrication department, and the assembly department. The engineering department is concerned with the construction of new products as well as the modification and customization of ex isting products. This entails the generation of engineering documents such as blue prints for manufacturing. The capacity of the engineering department is determined by the the count and qualification of engi neers and by the availability of construction devices such as computer aided design (CAD) systems etc.Assembly is manual with the support of power tools such as drill and riveting devices (cf. Bullen [45], Chao and Graves [51]). Figure 2.6 gives a schematic visualization of the assembly process of the Boeing 737 (cf. Greenwald [127]). The baseanbsp;...
