Abstract

Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to illustrate the appropriateness of System Dynamics (SD) as a tool for obtaining a total productive environment in an offset machine of a commercial printing press, which in this research will be termed as “Total Production Management”. Considering the case of a multicolor sheet feed offset machine, socio-technical variables and empirical research, an attempt is made in this research, to develop a SD model for Total Production Management, which is a novel approach. By controlling the Socio-technical variables, this model will simulate or predict the behavior of the important print performance parameters like: quality, cost and delivery time. Methodology - System Dynamics methodology was used in this research, to build an integrated dynamic simulation model called Total Production Management model for an offset printing machine. Findings - It was possible to identify different Socio-technical variables involved in the model of Total Production Management and their influence on the required printing performance like: cost, delivery and quality. Hence this can help managers in making efficient decisions regarding printing operation. Social implications - Since SD methodology is used, issues of sustainability are ensured and Socio-technical system theoretical frame work is considered for model building.
