Marsudi, Muhammad and Abdul Wahab, Dzuraidah and Che Haron, Che Hassan (2008) Development of a product design support tool using manufacturing cycle time. In: International Conference on Computers and Industrial Engineering, 31 October - 2 November 2008, Beijing, China.



Nowadays varieties of product are still continuously increasing in the market. To survive in their business, companies should be able develop new products. This means that for a company, product development is an important aspect for competing in the market. In this situation, a need for a design support tool to help product development team in the development activities is very urgent. This paper addresses the development of a design support tool based on mathematical model related to cycle time, modeling a multi-stage, multi-product production line system and it can process a variety of products in a batch production environment. Products are processed according to a predefined sequence. The tool used at earlier stages of product design to develop products in a shorter time.
