Effective operational control of a manufacturing system that has routing flexibility is dependent upon being able to make informed real-time decisions in the event of a system disruption, such as a machine breakdown or parts shortage. This paper presents a methodology for making a real-time selective rerouting decision using steady-state system performance estimates from simulation models run a priori to any system disturbance. The approach is to create a relatively simple tool based on simulated long-term system performance data. Evaluation of the effectiveness of the approach is based upon system performance measures of average flowtime and average throughput.
