What is discrete event simulation?

Discrete event simulation consists of a simulation model that is driven by internal model events triggered by actions within the model. Discrete event simulation models help analyze the impact of constraint changes on the simulated environment. Dynamic, On-the-fly discrete event software, like Simcad Pro, allow those changes to be performed during the simulation run and without the need to stop/restart the simulation.

Applications of discrete event simulation -

  • Assembly Line Balancing and Load Leveling
  • Capacity Planning & Scheduling
  • Production Planning and Inventory Control
  • Forecasting
  • Facility Layout and Design
  • Inventory Management
  • Automation Systems Validation
  • Process Engineering
  • Resource and Manpower Allocation
  • Transportation Management and Optimization
  • Supply Chain Management
  • Quality Management, Impact and 6 Sigma Analysis
  • Just-in-Time and Kanban Sizing
  • Cellular Manufacturing
  • One Piece Flow Manufacturing

Achieve an average of 50% reduction in model turn-around time with On-The-Fly Interactive Dynamic Simulation
