What is Simulation Modelling and its Purpose?

Posted by Admin on 1:43 PM
A simulation model is a model, built on a computer, which represents a system or a process. Most simulation models have a graphical animation (preferably 3-D) representing what is modelled. Simulations are built using a simulation software package such as Simul8, SLX, GPSS, Witness, AutoMod or Arena Simulation (our preferred package). A highly detailed simulation will accurately reflect what is modelled in order to make simulation runs or experiments to predict system performance and behaviour.

Our discrete event simulations are developed with the Arena Simulation by Rockwell Automation. This software allows a 2-dimensional animation to be created incorporating system characteristics. Data regarding customer throughput, volume and time frames are incorporated to develop a working demonstration of system performance.
