Technical Assistance To The Decision For The Choice Of A Physical Configuration

In this paper a technique for decision support for selecting a physical configuration are presented. This technique is useful during the redesign of a proposed restructuring of production processes resulted in a BPR approach. Based on the use of simulation and from the traditional experimental designs. It involves assessing the ability of the said configuration to cope with external and internal changes it faced. Our evaluation process is essentially based on the criterion of flexibility, this perverse concept and the ability of the configuration to accommodate the possible future directions for the installation of one or more measures of progress. Our work is illustrated by a case study.
