Abstract: In practice, sequence changes during production often occur due to material shortages, rush jobs, etc. Rescheduling, expediting and de-expediting are common practice on the shop floor, but in many cases it is less clear to which extent such control policies influence throughput times. The aim of this paper is to study the impact of sequence changes on the average throughput time and its variability. The analysis is done by means of simulation.
