The course covers essentials of systems dynamics providing a continuous simulation
perspective coupled with a broad treatment of strategic systems thinking issues as related to Global manufacturing problems. It also handles discrete event simulation that ventures further into detailedevent-driven model building analysis and demonstrates how Global manufacturing facilities can be successfully planned, implemented and managed. Supporting topics include the use of the simulation for modeling the supply-chains with the objective to
optimize, fine-tune and control them.
This course enables the students to understand a set of techniques that use computers to imitate the operations of various real-world tasks or processes through simulation.
At the end of this course, the student should be able to:
- Learn discrete event simulation modeling
- Use computer simulation to model, analyze and improve systems under study.
- Study systems dynamics and continuous simulation
The main outcome is to provide an insight into how simulation modeling can aid in effective
