The objective of this paper is to present a method for the continuous cost optimization of manufacturing systems in dependence upon planned output quantities in the field of series productions. To do this, a controller has been developed with which the optimum cost operating point can be set via a controlling model based on control cycles. The model enables the user to identify potential improvement measures and to analyze them in advance with regard 10 their profitability. This is achieved by breaking down known orders into capacitance packages. By comparing capacities, simulation-based rationalization potentials in the system can then be identified and measures evaluated with regard to their cost effectiveness.
