Abstract—The objective of this project is to reduce the numbers of work-in-process (WIP) at veneer lamination line One of the problems that been identified and formulated was poor production planning and scheduling at the veneer lamination line. Scheduling analysis of priority rules to overcome the poor planning and scheduling problem by comparing the existing rules of sequencing jobs by using earliest due date (EDD) method with other three priority rules which are first come first serve (FCFS), shortest processing time (SPT) and longest processing time (LPT) been approached to the system to be analyze. Average Job Delayed (AJD) has been used as the measures of effectiveness. New sequencing jobs rule of SPT instead of EPT which is currently used has been proposed and managed to reduce the number of WIP board from 1500 pieces to only 80 pieces.
