It provides an important method of analysis which is easily verified, communicated, and understood.
Across industries and disciplines, simulation modeling provides valuable solutions by giving clear insights into complex systems.
Simulation enables experimentation on a valid digital representation of a system.
What is the need of simulation?
Simulation can be used to predict the performance of an existing or planned system and to compare alternative solutions for a particular design problem. Another important goal of Simulation in Manufacturing Systems is to quantify system performance.
What are the advantages of simulation?
Main advantages of simulation include:
- Study the behavior of a system without building it.
- Results are accurate in general, compared to analytical model.
- Help to find un-expected phenomenon, behavior of the system.
- Easy to perform “What-If” analysis.
What are the uses of simulation and modeling?
Simulation modeling is the process of creating and analyzing a digital prototype of a physical model to predict its performance in the real world. Simulation modeling is used to help designers and engineers understand whether, under what conditions, and in which ways a part could fail and what loads it can withstand.
What are practical applications of simulation?
Computer simulations can be used in numerous practical situations, for example at optimization of complex production systems, including logistic ones, scheduling of production, forecasting of prices on financial markets, as process tools for engineering simulation, municipal simulation models and traffic engineering,
