Capacity assessment for a shared multi-product conveyor system under different product combination scenarios

In a BabyCare plant, two multi-product production lines share a single palletizing workstation. Both lines feed their output to a shared conveyor. This conveyor that links the two production lines to the palletizing station also acts as a work-in-progress inventory. Depending on various factors including product-dependent production rates of these lines, interruptions on the lines and/or palletizer, the load on the conveyor may fluctuate significantly.
