A METHOD FOR MODELLING THE FLOW OF OBJECTS TO BE MACHINED IN FMS USING ENTERPRISE DYNAMICS

Print

ABSTRACT

Owing to the complexity of technical and organizational problems that manufacturing enterprises are faced with, there is a growing interest in methods and tools that aid design of manufacturing systems. These methods and tools can be applied both to reorganize the existing manufacturing systems and to design new ones. For this reason, computer simulations are widely used in production engineering. This paper presents the application of computer simulations when designing the subsystem known as ordering of objects in a flexible manufacturing system. The simulations were performed using the comprehensive simulation software Enterprise Dynamics.
