This paper addresses the increasingly prevalent phenomenon of customer integrated production systems. In particular, it examines the operation of systems where customer integration has been enabled by the implementation of EDI and where supply chain uncertainty exists. A simulation model of such a system was employed to analyze four different production systems operating under different batch procedures and cost scenarios. Numerous experiments were conducted and the results obtained were analyzed. Several conclusions relating to customer behavior pattern and supply chain uncertainty were drawn from this analysis.
