This simulation allows you to compare different approaches to influence flow, the Flow Times and the throughput of a work process.

By adjusting the sliders below you can 
  • observe the work process without any work in process limitations (WIP Limits), 
  • with process step specific WIP Limits* (work state WIP limits), 
  • or you may want to see the impact of the Tameflow approach with Kanban Token and Replenishment Token 
  • or see the impact of the Drum-Buffer-Rope** method. 
* Well know in (agile) Kanban
** Known in the physical world of factory production

The "Tameflow approach" using Kanban Token and Replenishment Token as well as the Drum-Buffer-Rope method take oth the Constraint (the weakest link of the work process) into consideration when pulling in new work items into the delivery "system". 

You can also simulate the effects of PUSH instead of PULL. 

Feel free to play around and recognize the different effects of work scheduling methods.

The work flow itself
Look at the simulation as if you would look on a kanban board

The simulation mimics a "typical" software delivery process. 

From left to right you find the following ten process steps. 
  1. Input Queue (Backlog)
  2. Selected for work (waiting for analysis or work break down)
  3. Analyse, break down and understand
  4. Waiting for development
  5. In development
  6. Waiting for review
  7. In review
  8. Waiting for deployment
  9. In deployment
  10. Done

In 2012, the City of Vancouver created a sustainability strategy for staying on the leading edge of urban development called the “Greenest City: 2020 Action Plan (GCAP)” [1Open in Pop-up]. In the report, the GCAP noted that its highest priority action was to encourage the use of electric vehicle transport in both public and private sectors. Since then, programs such as the Clean Energy Vehicle (CEV) program have been revamped to encourage consumers to choose the greener choice, often rewarding owners with up to $5000 in incentives for battery-powered vehicles and plug-in hybrids. However, the benefits of choosing electric cars are not all clear as several reports have found that hybrid electric vehicles (HEV), plug-in electric hybrid vehicles (PHEV), and battery electric cars (BEV) generate more carbon emissions during their production than current conventional vehicles [2]. I thought it would be interesting to study this sustainability issue through a systems model to determine how much impact it has on the environment compared to conventional vehicles. 

https://insightmaker.com/insight/159243/CO2-Emissions-by-Vehicle-Type-Gasoline-vs-Electric

Our model explores both carbon emissions of standard gasoline vehicles and electric vehicles from production to distribution in Canada specifically. Unfortunately, we were unable to find any statistics regarding the number of electric vehicles in production in Canada, so we have used the sales number as our production number estimate. For CO2 emission statistics, we made sure to carefully separate different types of electric vehicles as the production of the battery in battery electric vehicles have significantly more carbon emissions during production.

As expected, the carbon emissions from electric vehicles are much lower than those of gasoline vehicles after taking into account the lifecycle emissions from an average lifespan of 8 years on the road (which is the standard warranty length offered from most car companies). Some interesting things to note are that with our current rise in electric vehicle adoption, electric vehicles will dominate the roads in about 100 years. This transformation may be further accelerated by the large-scale initiatives offered by governmental organizations and increased awareness for sustainable practices. Furthermore, it was very surprising to find that electric vehicle carbon emissions will exceed that of gasoline vehicles after nearly 1000 years, but after further analysis, this makes sense as by then electric vehicles will greatly outnumber gasoline vehicles. This means that electric vehicles are not only the greener choice -- electric vehicles are by far the greenest choice as it will take nearly a thousand years before its emissions will be equal to that of its gasoline counterpart. In fact, it may even take longer than 1000 years for electric vehicles to emit more carbon emissions than gasoline vehicles if we continue looking for more sustainable methods for producing electricity and proactively choose renewable energy over fossil fuels.
