New Lot-Tracking Paradigms for Automated Manufacturing - As manufacturing environments transition from large lot sizes to continuous process flow, traditional lot-tracking methods may fail to recognize that units within a lot can be spread over several operations at any given time in the manufacturing process. This case study demonstrates how one large manufacturing firm combined elements of ...

A Manufacturing Paradigm that Combines Discrete and Continuous Methods: Part 1 - Automation of production equipment and information systems has altered the very nature of manufacturing. In this article, an innovative new theory of lot control is presented. This new method of processing, however, requires several changes to existing manufacturing systems
