Welcome to "Simulation of Drum-Buffer-Rope Production Control Using R-Simmer". This is a project-based course which should take about 2 hours to finish. Before diving into the project, please take a look at the course objectives and structure. By the end of this project, you will gain introductiory knowledge of Drum-Buffer-Rope Production Control, Discrete Event Simulation, be able to use R Studio and Simmer library, create statistical variables required for simulation, define process trajectory, define and assign resources, define arrivals (eg. incoming customers / work units), run simulation in R, store results in data frames, plot charts and interpret the results.
