A profit analysis of a commercial offset printing production system working under various dynamic priority rules has been undertaken. The task is to investigate both whether and how a change in priority rules affects the system’s performance. A mutual impact of the dynamic priority rule utilized (EDD, LOR, MOR, SPT, and LPT), system workload (by means of machine utilization) and input buffer capacities have been studied.
