Abstract: In current markets with rapidly changing customer expectations and technology and severe competition, it is highly important for a company to effectively respond to these changes and the associated uncertainty. This paper focuses on workforce flexibility to deal with the current markets, and more specific on dual resource constrained production systems. A dual resource constrained (DRC) production system is one in which all equipment in the shop is not fully staffed and, furthermore, workers can be transferred from one piece of equipment to another as needed. The main dimensions of a DRC production system are worker flexibility, worker assignment, transfer costs, job release mechanism, job dispatching and specific methodologies for DRC scheduling. In this paper, a serial manufacturing line with flexible workers is studied. The melting line of a zinc-producing company in Belgium is simulated and the influence of DRC-concepts on the efficiency of the production line is tested.
