Abstract:SES Creative is a toy company that manufactures a wide array of educational toys. The packaging for all their products is done by themselves. Most of the products are packaged on the packaging line. Packaging the products costs a lot of time and it is the last step in the manufacturing process before a product can be shipped. By reducing the time that it takes to do the packaging, SES will be able to handle orders more flexibly. In this project an overview of the current packaging line is given and a bottleneck analysis is done. A simulation of the packaging line is made and in this simulation, line optimization experiments are conducted. With the results of these experiments, an improved configuration for the packaging line is given.
