Abstract
The scope of this paper is the assessment of inventory reducing autonomous control strategies in serial production networks under stochastic influence. Thereby a flow shop scenario with three production lines including four processors in each case is considered. Three types of products are manufactured, whereas each type is preferably produced on one specific line. In order to maintain validity, a time-continuous approximation of a discrete event simulation model of the flow shop is realized. New methods of feedforward and feedback control as well as a combined strategy are used. After discussing the outcomes of control strategies under deterministic conditions, stochastic effects are added. Implications from deterministic and stochastic realizations are discussed under comparison of their behaviour.
