COURSE CODE: MEC4222
COURSE CREDIT UNIT: 3
ACADEMIC PROGRAMME: Mechanical Engineering, Bsc
COLLEGE/SCHOOL/FACULTY: School of Engineering and Applied Sciences
STATUS: Elective
PROGRAMME TYPE: Undergraduate

Course Description


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.

COURSE JUSTIFICATION/RATIONALE:

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.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

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

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The main outcome is to provide an insight into how simulation modeling can aid in effective

decision-making.
