On the basis of an operations research technique of simulation, a model of a theoretical ready foods system was described. The model was translated into a code executed on a computer, and the sequences, i.e., production schedules, that emerged were compared with designated measures of performance. The priority dispatch rules tested, based on time standards developed for this theoretical ready foods system, would apply only to this facility. Similar studies might be made for other foodservice systems to reach conclusions applicable to thos operations. The SOT (shortest operation time) decision rule appeared to be most useful in enhancing the effectiveness of this theoretical ready foods system in accordance with the chosen measures of performance.
