Abstract

Delphi Corporation decided to use simulation from concept development to installation of a new multimillion dollar fuel injector production line. In this paper we describe how simulation was employed in the concept development phase to assess whether production targets required for financial viability were feasible and to identify the critical features of the line on which to focus design-improvement efforts.
