|Title:||Kinetic Part-Feeding Models for Assembly Lines in Automotive Industries|
|Authors:||Michael Herty, Lena Michailidis, Marcus Ziegler|
This paper deals with the modeling of production processes in automotive industries by models based on partial differential equations.The basic idea consists on the derivation of kinetic equations to model production ﬂow on an assembly line. Numerical results based on data of an assembly plant are presented. The work implements a recent discussion [34, 38] for general ﬂow on unstructured networks.
