Abstract

This article presents the simulation results of using Arena software in investigating the influence of lean production that depend on sequencing techniques in a manufacturing firm which operates based on engineer-to-order. By using the actual data collected from a case study, two sequencing techniques, Johnson Rule's and Critical Ratio were applied. The result showed that the use of sequencing techniques in an engineer-to-order operation was beneficial in optimising the operating time, and increasing output number. The finding will benefit manufacturing firms in making strategic decision to implement lean production in engineer-to-order operations.
