Abstract

Purpose The purpose of this paper is to contribute to the lean manufacturing literature by providing a roadmap for pull production control system (PCS) implementation. Design/methodology/approach Axiomatic Design (AD) methodology is used to develop the proposed pull PCS transformation roadmap. Findings The proposed design methodology is validated in a real-life manufacturing system. The results show that the proposed methodology significantly reduces the design efforts. The methodology effectively helps to choose the most appropriate pull PCS and determine its operational settings with respect to the manufacturing system characteristics.
