    abstract = {The term 'synchronization' in manufacturing refers to the provision of the right components to the subsequent production steps at the right moment in time. It is widely assumed that synchronization is beneficial to the logistics performance of manufacturing systems. However, it has been shown that synchronization phenomena can be detrimental to systems in which they emerge. To study if synchronization phenomena also occur in and affect manufacturing systems' performance, a formal quantification and holistic understanding of the types of synchronization phenomena emerging in manufacturing are needed. This article aims to fill this research gap by developing synchronization measures for manufacturing systems, applying these measures to real-world production feedback data and utilising them to test the assumption about synchronization's beneficial effect on logistics performance. We identify two distinct synchronization types occurring in manufacturing systems, logistics and physics synchronization, and show that they are negatively correlated. Further, we show that logistics synchronization and due date performance exhibit anti-correlation and thus question the assumption that synchronization leads to higher efficiency in manufacturing systems. This article aids production managers in designing and optimising production systems, and supports further empirical research in production planning and control and production system design.},

    abstract="The term 'synchronization' in manufacturing refers to the provision of the right components to the subsequent production steps at the right moment in time. It is still unclear how manufacturing system characteristics impact synchronization. Thus, the purpose of this paper is to investigate the effect of manufacturing systems' characteristics on the emergence of logistics synchronization in them. We conduct a discrete-event simulation study to examine the effect of three system characteristics: (1) material flow network architecture, (2) work content variation, and (3) order arrival pattern. Our findings suggest that the material flow network architecture and the work content variation are related to logistics synchronization. Linear manufacturing systems with stable processing times such as flow shops operate at high logistics synchronization levels, while highly connected systems with high variability of processing times such as job shops exhibit lower synchronization levels."

    abstract = "Abstract Synchronization as a dynamic process has found applications in many fields. However, it remains unclear how this phenomenon relates to manufacturing systems. The aim of this study is to investigate the conditions for emergence of synchronization and its effects on the wide spectrum of production logistics performance objectives. Using queueing theory as the underlying methodology for deductive modeling of manufacturing systems, we run computer simulations on networks of queueing systems and investigate synchronization measurements in relation to system parameters and performance indicators. Our initial findings suggest that different types of manufacturing systems display different synchronization behaviors and that periodically driven systems with deterministic arrival and service rates display higher synchronization in comparison to stochastic ones. Further, we show that intrinsic physics synchronization is correlated to capacity utilization, throughput times and WIP levels, suggesting the co-activity of operations is related to highly utilized systems, while external physics synchronization is anticorrelated to throughput times and WIP levels, suggesting that higher efficiencies emerge with workstation repetitive behavior."

    abstract = "Abstract On-time delivery is essential in today's dynamic conditions: if a company cannot produce and deliver on time, it has to make up for it by using high cost express delivery or faces customer dissatisfaction. One factor influencing the delivery reliability is the due date performance (DDP) within production. Although the significance of DDP has been established, the question of how to measure it remains. A review of existing literature shows the vast amount of different DDP measures (lateness, relative lateness, tardiness, schedule reliability, etc.). The purpose of this paper is to compare different DDP measures used in manufacturing in order to assess their interrelationship, so that companies are better able to understand the impact of their choice of measure. A review of DDP measures described in literature is performed, followed by statistical analysis of the relations between those measures computed on production feedback data from four real-world manufacturers. The results indicate that there exist differences across DDP measure groups. Further research is needed to assess the benefits of each measure in a given situation."

    abstract = "Abstract Manufacturing systems, transportation networks, and supply chains are all logistics systems, which are required to operate efficiently without waste of resources or time. Synchronization is a widely used term in connection with logistics systems, and it promises to increase efficiency by coordinating supply and demand over time and space. However, there is neither a common understanding of synchronization in logistics, nor an accepted way of measuring and quantifying it. This article investigates definitions of synchronization from various disciplines with the aim to come up with a commonly applicable interpretation of synchronization in logistics systems. This new comprehensive definition of synchronization in logistics systems is intended to avoid a misleading application of the term :synchronization: and to foster future developments of a concrete quantification and operationalization of synchronization in logistics systems. Our investigations show that the measurable and quantifiable phenomenon of synchronization in logistics is mainly composed of a temporal and performance-related coupling of the state of individual logistics elements or complete systems.
