Abstract

Cycle time is the key to competitiveness of a firm as it affects both price and delivery schedule. This study aims to model and simulate a garment manufacturer current production line and to propose improvement in order to reduce cycle time and increase output quantity. In the time being, this manufacturer is implementing overtime in order to meet the missed order. However, it still could not meet the requested order. The data needed to simulate the current production line is entered into the ProModel simulation software to analyse the real source for the problem. A solution had been proposed to improve the current situation. From the result, cycle time had been reduced. Reducing the cycle time means more output could be produced to meet the demand. This is very important for the related manufacturer to take note in order to increase their productivity as long as there is no restricting factor.
