Simulation modelling in manufacturing process design

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The design of manufacturing processes has become more complex as the need for
flexibility and speed has increased. Discrete-event simulation modelling tools
have advanced in recent years and visual interactive modelling software now
permits model building using icon-based systems. This case study involves the
of the interactions involved in manufacturing processes, from which they can
derive strategies for improvement to current systems and plan for future design.
The skills required for successful implementation and the limitations of the
approach are also discussed.
