Implementation of discrete event simulation on a manufacturing system optimization

Volume 11

The complexity of enterprise systems, the increasing needs for advanced collaboration among various systems within one institution or among many collaborating parties, and the velocity of organizational, policy, structural and market changes, presents nowadays challenges for the research community to develop more flexible and reliable technologies. Many real world manufacturing systems are too complex to be modeled analytically. Simulation based optimization is a very actual topic in discrete-event systems simulation. The paper deals with the problem of simulation based optimization of a manufacturing system. A model of a real manufacturing system that allows simulation of the system behavior at varying parameters is presented. The manufacturing system is modeled as a discrete event system with the purpose to a optimize job schedule.
