Abstract: The production control systems in industries become a significant pre-requisite for its success. The pull control systems could be a systematic approach for the effectiveness of production systems. This paper covers the investigation and performance analysis of Constant Work in Process (CONWIP), Kanban Control System (KCS) and Extended Kanban Control System (EKCS) using real time industrial problem. The industry manufactures two gears of different diameters and the demand for each is 20 per day. The CONWIP, KCS and EKCS are modeled as network diagrams in MATLAB-SIMULINK and simulated. The performance of EKCS is optimal as compared to KCS and CONWIP. The EKCS was implemented for one month and the production is increased by 54%.
