Circular Variable Work In Process


Author Info

  • Luis Vildosola


This work is focused on identifying a circular pull production control system (PPCS) and make emphasis on the presence of a stability attribute. It is an introductory paper to an extended study of macroeconomic financial stability in a physically open but systemic closed system. Previous work has been focused on achieving a balance between system failures and work in process inventory levels, under a particular risk allowance and a particular environmental scenario. This work establishes a thesis stating that a metaheuristics approach to PPCS will harvest benefits not possibly considered when optimizing a local process.
