Operators‘ Evaluation and Allocation in SME‘s Food Manufacturing Company Using Analytical Hierarchy Process and Computer Simulation

Ruzanita Mat Rani, Wan Rosmanira Ismail, and Mohd Nizam Ab. Rahman
Abstract—This paper presents the applications of Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) and computer simulation within the context of operators’ evaluation and allocation. AHP can be used to evaluate the performance of operators while computer simulation can be applied in analyzing the impact of production system performance if the operators’ performance is included in the operator allocation decision. The combination of the methods used in this study, improve the flexibility of the operator allocation decision. The results of the study are compared. It is found that operator allocation decision with the consideration of operators’ performance will affect the performance of the production system and outperform the current operator allocation decision.

Index Terms—AHP, computer simulation, operator allocation.
