Abstract

Due to the intense competition in today's business environment, companies must continuously analyze and enhance their existing manufacturing systems. Discrete event simulation, which is especially helpful for simulating queuing systems, involves describing the system as it evolves. The building and study of a simulation model of an existing production line are the main topics of this paper. The findings demonstrate that the current system's throughput is low due to bottlenecks, extended processing times at workstations, and inefficient resource utilization, all contribute to productivity losses in automotive assembly lines. This paper aims to evaluate the efficiency of the production line performance of automobile assembly lines using Arena modeling and simulation. Data provided by the company's management is utilized to calculate the processing time and standard time for each step in the production line. Additional information is gathered through direct observation of the assembly line. A car assembly manufacturing line was selected as a case study, and Arena 16.0 software was employed for basic modeling and analysis to achieve these objectives.
