What is a simulation study?

1) AutoCAD Layout or Process Flow

AutoCad Layout Discrete Event Simulation SIMUL8 Experts, SIMUL8 Consultants, Process Flow, Value

We start off with the process drawings i.e. AutoCAD, process flow charts, etc.

2) Collect Data

Collect Data, Discrete Event Simulation, SIMUL8 Experts, Process Flow, Process Simulation, MTBF, OEE

We create a simulation team and begin collecting data, such as: Cycle times, Change overs, Tool setups, Downtime (MTBF, MTTR), etc

3) Build Simulation based upon Layout

SIMUL8 Model Discrete Event Simulation SIMUL8 Experts, Process Simulation, SIMUL8 Design, 6-Sigma

MTN-SIM, LLC will create the simulation model using proposed layouts; this will become an animated version of the layout backed with input data.

4) Create Excel Input

Excel Interface, Discrete Event Simulation, SIMUL8 Experts, Process Simulation, SIMUL8, Lean, OEE

Usually an Excel interface is used to capture all key input variables of the model. 

5) Conduct "What If" Analysis

What If Analysis, Discrete Event Simulation, SIMUL8 Experts, Simulation Experiments, Process Flow

Often in the experimentation phase we conduct "What If" Analysis; making changes to the model and comparing results. 

6) Summarize Results

Statistics and Results Discrete Event Simulation, SIMUL8 Experts, 6 Sigma, Design for 6 Sigma, Lean

We can run a years production, and summarize performance metrics such as: Jobs per Hour, First Time Through, Schedule Adherence, OEE, Time in System, etc.
