Manufacturing systems model interoperability in discrete event simulation
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
The use of simulation has been said to be a useful tool to analyze manufacturing systems, Discrete Event Simulation - DES for instance under the occurrence of different events. Information management in Manufacturing Systems is an important issue and so it is insimulation studies because some of the difficulties in building, reusing and integratingsimulation models with other applications used in manufacturing systems are related withthe data. In this context different efforts have been made to facilitate the use of simulationand overcome interoperability problems through improving the information management,one of this is the Core Manufacturing Simulation Data Information Model - CMSDIMdeveloped by The National Institute of Standards and Technology - NIST. The objective of this thesis is to contribute to the use of the CMSDIM in ExtendSim V8. A method to import databases structured based on the CMSDIM into the Simulation softwareExtendSim V8 is developed and applied in a case study in a production line of SCANIA.
