Simulation as a Tool to Raise Productivity 962363

Historically simulation models were used exclusively in the design phase of a project. With the increasing flexibility of agile systems there is a need for simulation and simulation tools to assist personnel in the day-to-day decision making process.
More and more simulation is used to reduce development time for products, production processes and complete systems especially in the automotive industry and gets his fixed places in the areas of simultaneous engineering or rapid prototyping.
The benefits can be seen in shorter development cycles, determination of the production process already in the planning phase without the necessity to invest already in construction, balancing of the process, optimization of intermediate storage and with this capital invested, better material flow and more.
