Intended learning outcomes

The main goal of this course is to provide students with advanced level knowledge in discrete-event simulation (DES) methodology and application in the analysis of production and logistics systems. The course therefore provides practical experience in DES modeling coupled with theoretical depth in applied DES methods. After the course the student should be able to:

  • Describe fundamental concepts in discrete-event simulation.
  • List and explain advantages and disadvantages of simulation as an analysis tool.
  • Model stochastic input data with probability distributions and assess the quality of input models.
  • Build simulation models of production systems and logistics systems.
  • Perform advanced system analysis by experimental design with simulation models and draw conclusions from stochastic simulations.

Course content

  • Fundamental concepts in discrete-event simulation.
  • Simulation study methodology. Steps in a simulation study.
  • Input modelling.
  • Verification and validation of simulation models.
  • Experimentation and output analysis.
  • Modelling in a commercial simulation software.
  • Applications of simulation. Simulation of production systems and logistics systems.

Teaching and working methods

The course is organized in lectures, modelling classes (tutorials), and computer labs.
