Decisions regarding manufacturing development, optimization, or reorganization are driven by many factors and are often costly, with the benefits hard to justify before implementation.
Traditionally, decisions are made based upon intuition and experience, sometimes with the support of spreadsheet tools. These approaches can be risky and are unnecessary in decision making today.
Simulation is a powerful technique for analyzing manufacturing systems, evaluating the impact of system changes, and for making informed decisions.
Specific processes, and strategies such as JIT or Lean, can be modeled and simulated in your manufacturing system. This enables effective analysis, and provides an efficient way to experiment and reduce the costs of testing in the real world. AnyLogic gives you the power to get the most from your manufacturing.
