SIMULATION OF MANUFACTURING AND LOGISTICS SYSTEMS FOR THE 21TH CENTURY

This paper deals with computer simulation of manufacturing systems. It contains the basic simulation theory and principles of a simulation project management. Furthermore the authors introduced the idea of parametric simulation model, followed by special application areas of simulation, e.g. scheduling, emulation, metamodelling. The paper discusses the possibility to utilize a cloud computing technology in simulation. The case example of the application of simulation by the optimization of real production system concludes the working part of paper. The final part summarizes benefits and recommendations.
