Abstract

One of the most difficult problems that confronts the work measurement engineer, in the establishment of time standards for multiple machine assignments, is the determination of machine interference. Several empirically developed deterministic models have found wide acceptance for use in determining interference solutions for synchronized multiple machine assignments on semiautomatic machines. A stochastic solution process (Monte Carlo Computer Simulation Model) is considered as a means for improving the portrayal of such a man and machine system.
