Abstract

This paper studies an infinite horizon, continuous time, APIOBPCS (Automatic Pipeline Inventory and Order Based Production Control System) model. This model has been widely used for studying production system dynamics, which further have implications on total costs in terms of inventory holding, capacity utilization and customer service failures. The aim of current research is to investigate the dynamic behavior when disruption emerging in a supply chain. The results can be used to design a better production system to cope with interruption. We use classic control theory and simulation methods to quantify the dynamics in terms of response time metrics such as peak overshoot, peak time, setting time and rise time. We compare three conventional settings “nominal”, “fast”, and “slow” and their impact on dynamic performance in a disruption occurring scenario. Taking disruption risk into consideration we then adjust the parameter settings. Our results clear show that through sacrificing with longer response time and higher overshoot compared to routine design, it is possible to achieve relative long time self-feed running system when interruption event happens.
