With the increasing dynamics in the economic and technological environment, the planning cycles in assembly planning are shortening. Especially for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), assembly planning is a challenging task that could be very well supported by simulation. However, not least the lack of expert skills keeps SMEs from using sim...
Individuelle Produkte, komplexe Prozesse und hohe Produktivitäts- und Flexibilitätsanforderungen - Bedingungen, die viele Unternehmen vor große Herausforderungen bei der Planung ihrer Produktionssysteme stellen. Simulationsverfahren können hierbei unterstützen, in der Praxis sind allerdings diverse Hürden zu überwinden. Am Beispiel einer simulation...

Machine scheduling is one of the most important tasks in in-house production planning and control and belongs to the group of NP-heavy combinatorial optimisation problems. This poster uses a practical case study to demonstrate the extent to which simulation-based optimisation, which enables a dynamic approach to the system, can support employees in...

The poster presents the conceptualization and implementation of a Digital Twin for a new production plant of a manufacturer of white goods. A hierarchical Top-Down-Model was developed that incorporates 3 levels. On the plant level, modular simulation models for all production lines were implemented. These models are detailed on the second level and...
