seminar2 hours weekly (on-site method)

Credits allocated: 4
Recommended semester/trimester: Manufacturing Systems and Quality Management - master (semi-compulsory), 3. semester
Level of study: 2.
Prerequisites for registration: none
Assesment methods:
Credit and exam
- active participation in all exercises with the possibility of justification and substitution of max. 3 exercises.
- the exam consists of a practical part - solving the PC task and the theoretical part - answers to the given questions in written and oral form.
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The student will gain knowledge about the possibilities of using computer simulation methods in designing and managing especially production, transport and service systems, which can be modeled as a queuing systems. He will learn about the offers and possibilities of simulation program tools (especially Plant Simulation and Witness) and the possibilities of their use to solve specific tasks of practice. He will be able to use the Witness simulation system to solve the problems.
Course contents:
1. Definitions of concepts. Classification of simulation methods and approaches.
2. Theoretical basis of discrete simulation. Basic approaches to discrete simulation. Selected problems solved using simulation methods.
3. Use of the theory of probability and mathematical statistics in simulation.
4. Preparing input data for simulation models. Processing of statistical sets.
5. Programming tools for simulation. History. Means of simulation languages.
6. Examples of simulation languages and systems. Information on selected simulation systems.
7. Simulation system Witness. Basic characteristics and nature of modeling.
8. Options of building elements of simulation model and control logic. Documentation of the model.
9. Modeling of parts, machines, buffers, conveyors, tracks and vehicles, suspension tracks, operators, shifts, etc.
10.Logical elements of the model. Graphic options (histograms, time dependencies, plot charts).
11.Optimization of the simulation model. Module Optimizer.
12.Simulation study. Stages of the simulation study.
13.Experimentation with simulation models. Evaluating (analyzing) the results of experiments.
