Enjoy learning a key technology. Undergraduates and beginning graduates in both first and second simulation courses have responded positively to the approach taken in this text, which illustrates simulation principles using the popular Simio product. This economy version substitutes grayscale interior graphics to keep costs low for students. Content: This textbook explains how to use simulation to make better business decisions in application domains from healthcare to mining, heavy manufacturing to supply chains, and everything in between. It is written to help both technical and non-technical users better understand the concepts and usefulness of simulation. It can be used in a classroom environment or in support of independent study. Modern software makes simulation more useful and accessible than ever and this book illustrates simulation concepts with Simio, a leader in simulation software. Author Statement: This book can serve as the primary text in first and second courses in simulation at both the undergraduate and beginning-graduate levels. It is written in an accessible tutorial-style writing approach centered on specific examples rather than general concepts, and covers a variety of applications including an international flavor. Our experience has shown that these characteristics make the text easier to read and absorb, as well as appealing to students from many different cultural and applications backgrounds. A first simulation course would probably cover Chapter 1 through 8 thoroughly, and likely Chapters 9 and 10, particularly for upper class or graduate level students. For a second simulation course, it might work to skip or quickly review Chapters 1-3 and 6, thoroughly cover all other chapters up to Chapter 10, and use Chapter 11 as reinforcing assignments. The text or components of it could also support a simulation module of a few weeks within a larger survey course in programs without a stand-alone simulation course (e.g., MBA). For a simulation module that's part of a larger survey course, we recommend concentrating on Chapters 1, 4, and 5, and then perhaps lightly touch on Chapters 7 and 8. The extensibility introduced in Chapter 11 could provide some interesting project work for a graduate student with some programming background, as it could be easily linked to other research topics. The all new Chapter 12 will support learning about Industry 4.0, digital twins, and how simulation and simulation-based scheduling can contribute to successful implementations. Supplemental course material is also available on-line. Fifth Edition Changes: The new fifth edition is written for Simio Version 10, the latest in simulation technology. We have incorporated many new features as well as reader suggestions. We have enhanced the Monte Carlo, input analysis, and output analysis content, and added new coverage of data-driven and data-generated modeling techniques. Finally, we added a new chapter named Simulation-based Scheduling in Industry 4.0 which illustrates how simulation is contributing to the creation and effective operation of digital twins and operational scheduling and control.

This workbook features a participatory style of learning. You don't sit and read the book without a computer loaded with SIMIO. We expect your active participation in using SIMIO as you turn the pages. We try to carry on a conversation with you. Our belief is that simulation is not a spectator sport. This edition of the workbook has an evolved structure based on use and experience. More emphasis is placed on "why" modeling choices are made, to supplement the "how" in using SIMIO in simulation. In Chapter 1, we present fundamental simulation concepts, independent of SIMIO which can be skipped for those who already understand these fundamentals. In Chapters 2 through 6, concentrates of the use of the Standard Library Objects in SIMIO. You can do a lot of simulation modeling without resorting to more complex concepts. A key part of those chapters is learning to identify/separate the data in a model from the model structure. Chapter 7 introduces the fundamental topic of "processes," which we frequently employ in the following chapters. Chapters 8 and 9 concentrate on the important topics of flow and capacity. Chapter 10 introduces optimization in the context of supply chain modeling. Chapter 11 presents the influence of bias and variability on terminating and steady-state simulation. Chapter 12 introduces SIMIO materials handling features. Chapter 13 extends the use of resources while Chapters 14 and 15 describes the use of workers including the detailed services provided by task sequences and their animation. Chapter 16 details the simulation of call centers with reneging, balking, and cost optimization. Chapters 17 through 20 presents object-oriented simulation capabilities in SIMIO. Chapter 17 builds a model out of an existing model (we call it sub-modeling). Chapter 18 describes the anatomy of an existing SIMIO and in Chapter 19 we build a new object by "sub-classing" an existing object. In Chapter 20 a new object is designed and built from a base SIMIO object and its creation is contrasted with standard SIMIO object. Chapter 21 presents some of the continuous modeling features in SIMIO. Chapters 22 and 23 demonstrates the power of object-oriented simulation in the modeling supply chains and process planning respectively. We include an appendix on input modeling, although SIMIO does not provide software. The book is designed to be read from chapter to chapter, although it is possible to pick out certain concepts and topics. Some redundancy is helpful in learning. By the time you have finished this book you should be well-prepared to build models in SIMIO and to understand the virtues of different modeling approaches. Like SIMIO itself, this workbook has been designed for a variety of student, teacher, and practitioner audiences. For example, if you are interested in manufacturing, you will want to be sure to study data-based modeling in Chapter 5, assemply and packaging in Chapter 6, the workstation in Chapter 9, and material handling in Chapter 12. If you are interested in logistics, don't miss modeling of distances in Chapter 3, flow and capacity in Chapter 8, inventories and supply chains in Chapter 10, and free space travel in Chapter12. If you are interested in healthcare, be sure to review scheduled arrivals in Chapter 8, resource decision making in Chapter 13, mobile workers in Chapter 14, and animated people and task sequences in Chapter 15. If object-oreinted simulation is your interest, make sure to study Chapters 17 through 20, which describes how SIMIO provides composition and inheritance to create objects. Manufacting examples and examples from the service sector are used throughout. Also we pay some attention to input modeling (including input sensitivity) and output analysis (including confidence intervals and optimization). This workbook provides comprehensive and in-depth discussion of simulation modeling with SIMIO.

Content: The book is organized into three parts: Simulation Concepts, Simulation Model-Building with Simio, and Case Studies Using Simio. Each part is composed of two to six focused chapters. While the book as a whole will be fully integrated, the various chapters could stand alone as a module of a few weeks in a larger survey course, as well as serve as the foundation of a whole course on simulation that would go on to include some or all of the last three parts. Author Statement: Our objective is for this book to serve as the primary text in introductory and perhaps second courses in simulation at both the undergraduate and beginning-graduate levels. The text or components of it could also support a simulation module of a few weeks within a larger survey course in programs without a stand-alone simulation course (e.g., MBA). It is written in an accessible tutorial-style writing approach centered around specific examples rather than general concepts, and covers a variety of applications including an international flavor.

This workbook features a participatory style of learning. You don't sit and read the book without a computer loaded with SIMIO. We expect your active participation in using SIMIO as you turn the pages. We try to carry on a conversation with you. Our belief is that simulation is not a spectator sport. This edition of the workbook has an evolved structure based on use and experience. More emphasis is placed on "why" modeling choices are made, to supplement the "how" in using SIMIO in simulation. In Chapter 1, we present fundamental simulation concepts, independent of SIMIO which can be skipped for those who already understand these fundamentals. In Chapters 2 through 6, concentrates of the use of the Standard Library Objects in SIMIO. You can do a lot of simulation modeling without resorting to more complex concepts. A key part of those chapters is learning to identify/separate the data in a model from the model structure. Chapter 7 introduces the fundamental topic of "processes," which we frequently employ in the following chapters. Chapters 8 and 9 concentrate on the important topics of flow and capacity. Chapter 10 introduces optimization in the context of supply chain modeling. Chapter 11 presents the influence of bias and variability on terminating and steady-state simulation. Chapter 12 introduces SIMIO materials handling features. Chapter 13 extends the use of resources while Chapters 14 and 15 describes the use of workers including the detailed services provided by task sequences and their animation. Chapter 16 details the simulation of call centers with reneging, balking, and cost optimization. Chapters 17 through 20 presents object-oriented simulation capabilities in SIMIO. Chapter 17 builds a model out of an existing model (we call it sub-modeling). Chapter 18 describes the anatomy of an existing SIMIO and in Chapter 19 we build a new object by "sub-classing" an existing object. In Chapter 20 a new object is designed and built from a base SIMIO object and its creation is contrasted with standard SIMIO object. Chapter 21 presents some of the continuous modeling features in SIMIO. Chapters 22 and 23 demonstrates the power of object-oriented simulation in the modeling supply chains and process planning respectively. We include an appendix on input modeling, although SIMIO does not provide software. The book is designed to be read from chapter to chapter, although it is possible to pick out certain concepts and topics. Some redundancy is helpful in learning. By the time you have finished this book you should be well-prepared to build models in SIMIO and to understand the virtues of different modeling approaches. Like SIMIO itself, this workbook has been designed for a variety of student, teacher, and practitioner audiences. For example, if you are interested in manufacturing, you will want to be sure to study data-based modeling in Chapter 5, assemply and packaging in Chapter 6, the workstation in Chapter 9, and material handling in Chapter 12. If you are interested in logistics, don't miss modeling of distances in Chapter 3, flow and capacity in Chapter 8, inventories and supply chains in Chapter 10, and free space travel in Chapter12. If you are interested in healthcare, be sure to review scheduled arrivals in Chapter 8, resource decision making in Chapter 13, mobile workers in Chapter 14, and animated people and task sequences in Chapter 15. If object-oreinted simulation is your interest, make sure to study Chapters 17 through 20, which describes how SIMIO provides composition and inheritance to create objects. Manufacting examples and examples from the service sector are used throughout. Also we pay some attention to input modeling (including input sensitivity) and output analysis (including confidence intervals and optimization). This workbook provides comprehensive and in-depth discussion of simulation modeling with SIMIO.

A primary text in introductory and perhaps second courses in simulation at both the under-graduate and beginning-graduate levels. Such simulation courses are found in departments of industrial and systems engineering, most business schools, and many computer-science departments; simulation courses are also found in other engineering disciplines (mechanical, civil, electrical, chemical), mathe- matics, statistics, epidemiology, and agriculture. The text or components of it could also support a simulation module of a few weeks within a larger sur- vey course in programs without a stand-alone simulation course (e.g., MBA). It is written in an accessible tutorial-style writing approach centered around specific examples rather than general concepts, and covers a variety of appli-cations. Our experience has shown that these characteristics make the text easier to read and absorb, as well as appealing to students from many dfferent backgrounds.

Often management is the art of making strategic and tactical decisions with a total lack of objective information. How often do we wish for a crystal ball that would let us see how decisions today will play out in the future? Unfortunately it is not yet possible to predict the future, but it is possible to generate objective criteria to help make today's decisions. While simulation has been around for decades, recent advances have made it much more accessible and useful in our daily world. The software is now less expensive and easier to learn and use. And the flexibility and accuracy have dramatically improved. But most important, modern tools allow you to solve problems much faster than ever before – making those solutions timelier and less costly, and letting you reap the benefits quickly.We invite you to learn about simulation and its potential to improve your business. Then perhaps use this book as a companion to the free software download to start building models on your first day. After completing this introduction, you can continue your learning by taking advantage of the free video training available on the Simio web site or via the Support ribbon on the downloaded software.

Better Business Decisions with Simulation: An Introduction for Business Students is an introduction to discrete event simulation (DES) intended for the MBA and related academic markets. The book presents an overview of DES and highlights the key role it can play in helping organizations improve the processes they employ to produce their goods and services. Following an overview of DES, the book presents an introduction to the SIMIO software system as well as a step-by-step description with pictures of how to build and analyze basic models in SIMIO. Several detailed examples are presented. The presentation is aimed at the non-technical audience with the intention of illustrating both the usefulness of DES modeling and analysis and the power of SIMIO. Along the way, the book highlights SIMIO's relative "ease of use" and debunks the notion that one needs to be an engineer or similarly trained analyst to build useful simulation models. With SIMIO's "select-drag-& click" modeling capability, the power of simulation has been taken to the masses! This book is ideally suited for a two - four week segment in a university course on Business Analytics, Management Science, healthcare analytics, or Operations Management. It could also be used as introductory materials for a corporate training course on modern simulation. Course materials, including PowerPoint slides and the SIMIO models discussed in the book are available for instructors adopting the book.

This book presents for the first time a methodology that combines the power of a modelling formalism such as colored petri nets with the flexibility of a discrete event program such as SIMIO. Industrial practitioners have seen the growth of simulation as a methodology for tacking problems in which variability is the common denominator. Practically all industrial systems, from manufacturing to aviation are considered stochastic systems. Different modelling techniques have been developed as well as mathematical techniques for formalizing the cause-effect relationships in industrial and complex systems. The methodology in this book illustrates how complexity in modelling can be tackled by the use of coloured petri nets, while at the same time the variability present in systems is integrated in a robust fashion. The book can be used as a concise guide for developing robust models, which are able to efficiently simulate the cause-effect relationships present in complex industrial systems without losing the simulation power of discrete-event simulation. In addition SIMIO’s capabilities allows integration of features that are becoming more and more important for the success of projects such as animation, virtual reality, and geographical information systems (GIS).
