    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för matematik och matematisk statistik; Umeå universitet/Institutionen för matematik och matematisk statistik

    Author : Mattias Lundberg; Johan Söderlund; [2017]
    Keywords : discrete event; simulation; optimization; genetic algorithm; heuristics; production sequence; Body In White; Volvo Trucks; diskret händelsestyrd; simulering; optimering; genetisk algoritm; heuristiker; produktionssekvens; Body In White; Volvo Lastvagnar;

    Abstract : In this study, a discrete event model was created and used in combination with an optimization method to find the optimal production sequence at Volvo Group’s cab plant in Umeå. The optimization was performed with a heuristic approach combined with a genetic search algorithm. READ MORE

  3. 3. Application of Performance Measurement on Manufacturing Simulations for Knowledge-Based Decision Support

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Teknisk logistik

    Author : Johan Lorentzon; Johan Fredlund; [2017]
    Keywords : discrete event simulation; simulation; performance measurement; manufacturing; DES; production; DSS; DSSS; knowledge-based decision support; decision support; decision support system; metric; KPI; case; industrial engineering; production economics; operations; management; industry; decision; measure; performance; evaluation; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Manufacturing systems are becoming increasingly more complex at the same time as competition requires manufacturers to continuously improve their effectiveness and efficiency. The use of discrete event simulation to model manufacturing systems is well-established and generally considered to be the method of choice when analysing what-if scenarios. READ MORE

  4. 4. Process Innovation Challenges : - how to reduce Uncertainty through Discrete Event Simulation

    University essay from Mälardalens högskola/Akademin för innovation, design och teknik; Mälardalens högskola/Innovation och produktrealisering
