This paper describes the investigation of the effects on cash inflow and costs of production for a Automatic Pipeline, Variable Inventory and Order Based Production Control System (APVIOBPCS) production system using as an example electronic RAM production. The investigation includes varying the order up to inventory and WIP gains as well as the effects of PID control to illustrate the profit gain from using control analysis. The results show that a PID controlled production system will allow payback sooner that a proportionally controlled one. A higher value of desired inventory level also allows earlier payback.
