Simulation Modeling and Analysis with ARENA Book Excerpt:

Simulation Modeling and Analysis with Arena is a highly readable textbook which treats the essentials of the Monte Carlo discrete-event simulation methodology, and does so in the context of a popular Arena simulation environment. It treats simulation modeling as an in-vitro laboratory that facilitates the understanding of complex systems and experimentation with what-if scenarios in order to estimate their performance metrics. The book contains chapters on the simulation modeling methodology and the underpinnings of discrete-event systems, as well as the relevant underlying probability, statistics, stochastic processes, input analysis, model validation and output analysis. All simulation-related concepts are illustrated in numerous Arena examples, encompassing production lines, manufacturing and inventory systems, transportation systems, and computer information systems in networked settings. · Introduces the concept of discrete event Monte Carlo simulation, the most commonly used methodology for modeling and analysis of complex systems · Covers essential workings of the popular animated simulation language, ARENA, including set-up, design parameters, input data, and output analysis, along with a wide variety of sample model applications from production lines to transportation systems · Reviews elements of statistics, probability, and stochastic processes relevant to simulation modeling * Ample end-of-chapter problems and full Solutions Manual * Includes CD with sample ARENA modeling programs

Simulation Modeling and Arena Book Excerpt:

Traditionally, there have been two primary types of simulation textbooks: those that emphasize the theoretical (and mostly statistical) aspects of simulation, and those that emphasize the simulation language or package.Simulation Modeling and Arena, Second Edition blends these two aspects of simulation textbooks together while adding and emphasizing the art of model building. This book features coverage of statistical analysis, which is integrated with the modeling to emphasize the importance of both topics. The Second Edition features new topical coverage, including static simulation and spreadsheet simulation; how simulation works and why it matters; and expanded use of Arena, specifically the use of strings in models, the Atribute module, the OnChange block, visual dashboards, and an introduction to 3-D animation concepts. In addition, a running example is presented throghout each chapter to prepare readers to perform a realistic case study based on the IIE/RA contest problem. The new edition also contains expanded topical coverage on: simulation clock within discrete event modeling simulation; statistical modeling concepts with the theoretical basis and equationsneeded to perform the analysis by hand; increased use of Arena Run Controller, modeling non-stationary arrival processes; and the Wait-Signal constructs.

Simulation Modeling and Analysis of Productivity Enhancement in Manufacturing Company Using Arena Software Book Excerpt:

Every manufacturing company wants to improve and adapt their operating system in order to survive the industry competition. In manufacturing organizations, to improve their system it might mean to reduce the operating costs that come from the wastes in production line. By using the ARENA simulation in this study, the productivity improvement can be experimented without physically affect the real system and reduced the cost because designing, building, testing, redesigning, rebuilding and retesting can be an expensive project. This study focus on the flow in the production line processes in one piston manufacturing company. The existing plant layout was studied and formulated into ARENA simulation software as well as to enhance the productivity rate by improving certain parameters. The problems identified in this production line are the effect of the bottleneck process which resulting some idle time in some workstations and the increased piston demands from the customers. The data acquired and was translated into the ARENA simulation software and studied in order to simulate the existing plant layout design. Hence, the problems occurred in the production line can be seen clearly to determine room for productivity improvement. New designs are proposed by constructing several models to acquire the best solution to improve productivity capacity and meet the forecasting demand of customer. In these proposed models, the parameters of the actual system are modified accordingly in the terms of material handling such as human resources, machine cycle time, the number of machines, shape and area of plant layout. From the simulation results, the significant contribution factor that influenced the rate of productivity was by adding certain machines to do the same process to cover the buffer while the material handling did not have a huge effect on the production line.

Simulation Modeling and Arena Book Excerpt:

Discrete-event simulation is an important tool for the modeling of complex systems. Simulation is used to represent manufacturing, transportation, and service systems in a computer program to perform experiments on a computer. Simulation modeling involves elements of system modeling, computer programming, probability and statistics, and engineering design. Simulation Modeling and Arena, by Dr. Manuel Rossetti, is an introductory textbook for a first course in discrete-event simulation modeling and analysis for upper-level undergraduate students as well as entering graduate students. The text is focused on engineering students (primarily industrial engineering); however, the text is also appropriate for advanced business majors, computer science majors, and other disciplines where simulation is practiced. Practitioners interested in learning simulation and Arena could also use this book independently of a course.

Remanufacturing Modeling and Analysis Book Excerpt:

New, Now, Next. Consumers’ ever growing appetite to acquire new products and their short courtship with them has kept manufacturers busy not only expending resources at an alarming rate, but also depleting these resources and giving rise to waste and pollution at a correspondingly increasing and disturbing rate. Traditional manufacturing methods that use mainly virgin materials to produce new products and dispose of the used products at the end of their lives are quickly becoming unsustainable. In addition, regulations that require manufacturers to take back products and dispose of them responsibly have forced manufacturers to establish dedicated facilities for product recovery—systems that minimize waste and maximize remanufacturing and recycling. Remanufacturing Modeling and Analysis explores the design, planning and processing issues encountered in remanufacturing systems and provides examples of quantitative modeling methodologies to deal with them. The book covers the history, industry size and potential, comparison with other end-of-life options, benefits, conditions, challenges, and steps in a typical process. It provides a brief overview of each of the industrial engineering and operations research techniques used in the book and explains the models developed to increase the remanufacturability of product designs. The book also discusses how increasingly stringent environmental regulations and decreasing natural resources influence manufacturers toward more environmentally conscious manufacturing and product recovery initiatives. With easy-to-use mathematical or simulation modeling that demonstrates solutions for each remanufacturing issue, the book helps practitioners understand how a particular issue can be effectively modeled and how to choose the appropriate solution methodology. An in-depth look at quantitative analysis for remanufacturing systems, the book provides a foundation upon which to build a body of knowledge in this fast and growing area.
