This study shows that, for many manufacturing processes (such as welding and injection moulding), a machine breakdown will result in the scrapping of a component, and goes on to explain the effect that this can have on process simulation models. Breakdown related scrapping events are ignored by commercially available process simulation packages and this reduces their usefulness in decision support. This paper explains the different types of breakdown/scrapping dynamic possible and provides equations which can be used to describe them in future generations of simulation software. This work clearly demonstrates the scrapping dynamics effect on one of the major performance measures in LEAN based manufacturing systems, namely the Overall Equipment Effectiveness.
