Is it your task to optimize an existing production plant and the corresponding processes with regard to their efficiency or utilization, e.g. further to changes in the product mix? Or, as an engineer, to design optimally a new plant? In this course, you will learn how to identify existing bottlenecks and to perform capacity analyses by using logistic-oriented simulation, in order to reduce production costs and to avoid inappropriate investments.
The course is designed for people who would like to apply simulation in order to optimize production processes and plants and who want to use SIMBAX for this purpose.
SIMBAX is a user-friendly PC software package that was originally developed by the former Ciba-Geigy company. It runs under Windows. SIMBAX is tailored to the needs of the process industries and enables the engineer to model easily a variety of operations - from continuous processes to container logistics over usual batch operations. It offers a large number of graphical outputs as, for instance, an animated Gantt chart and related statistical graphics for the analysis of the results. Today, SIMBAX is being supported and extended by AICOS Technologies AG.
The course provides, on the one hand, basic knowledge to better understand material flow simulation and to facilitate its application; on the other hand, the concepts of SIMBAX are explained and practised on the basis of examples. The course is offered in two parts, A and B, each of which lasts two days. The two parts can be taken separately.
