Gastvorlesung: Modeling and Simulation for IBC Students

Simulation and modeling is getting more and more important to study a complex System, to measure its performance, to improve its operation or to evaluate different design decisions if it doesn’t exist. Systems in this case could be built by manufacturing processes, by workflow systems, business processes or combinations of them. Today, powerful desk top computers and simulators make it possible to establish modeling and simulation as a standard tool in a company.

The class starts with an introduction into simulation and modeling in general and the Simio simulation software in particular. This includes an overview of the different simulation approaches and available modeling languages as well the basic concepts of the Simio simulation software. The following major part gives you the opportunity to gather simulation experience by realizing a set of small case studies or labs.
