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.

Supplemental course material is also available on-line. Third Edition: The new third edition adds sections on Randomness in Simulation, Model Debugging, and Monte Carlo simulation. In addition, the coverage of animation, input analysis and output analysis has been significantly expanded. There is a new appendix on simulation-based scheduling, end-of-chapter problems have been improved and expanded, and we have incorporated many reader suggestions. We have reorganized the material for improved flow, and have updates throughout the book for many of the new Simio features recently added. A new format better supports our e-book users, and a new publisher supports significant cost reduction for our readers.

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.

What makes this book different?This book is different than most. First, it's written in what might be called a participatory style. You don't sit and read the book without a computer loaded with SIMIO. This book expects 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. You have to practice to gain skill with it and you develop that skill through modeling practice. This book encourages you to practice and use your skill. Second, this book is focused on simulation modeling with SIMIO and most of the statistical analysis and analytical issues are left as topics to be explored elsewhere. Now it's not that we don't think these are important, because they are vital (and when we teach simulation, they are a fundamental part of the course). But we aren't going to spend much time on these topics here, since there are excellent simulation books that can fill our omission. Active learning:Our intent is that you become an active learner and, as our title suggests, you “work” as you read. Our classroom experience is that students learn most by “doing”, so this workbook is centered about “labs” – which our students do during class. The chapters in this book generally correspond to one lab. If you are not in a classroom, but want to learn SIMIO on your own, we think you will find this approach attractive for self-learning. You can work through a chapter in an evening. Organization of this book:This book is conceptually organized so you build models quickly. In the first five chapters, we concentrate of the use of the Standard Library Objects in SIMIO. You can do a lot of simulation modeling without resorting to more complex concepts. Then the next seven chapters show you how to extend the standard objects using processes. Learning how to extend the objects gives you more modeling flexibility without having to invent your own library of objects. In the later chapters, we discuss the creation of new objects and the modification of existing objects within SIMIO and show you the power of its object-oriented capabilities. The book is designed to be read from chapter to chapter, although it may be possible to pick out certain concepts and topics. In the beginning chapters we construct models rather directly without much explanation as to why certain features are chosen. In the later chapters we provide more explanation on why the modeling features are chosen and what else might be done. Some later chapters return to topics that were previously introduced, but we try to present them in more detail. 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. At the end of most chapters, we offer commentary on topics presented. We will emphasize the strengths and weaknesses of the modeling approach and the language (we have no financial stake in SIMIO). The designers of SIMIO were also the designers of Arena and there are Arena fingerprints on SIMIO. Since a number of you will be migrating from Arena, we will provide some observations on these “fingerprints.” However, be prepared to go well beyond what you have learned in Arena or in any other simulation language. SIMIO has a far more modern “look and feel” and, in our opinion, is generally superior to most other simulation language choices.

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.

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).

The book shows how simulation’s long history and close ties to industry since the third industrial revolution have led to its growing importance in Industry 4.0. The book emphasises the role of simulation in the new industrial revolution, and its application as a key aspect of making Industry 4.0 a reality – and thus achieving the complete digitisation of manufacturing and business. It presents various perspectives on simulation and demonstrates its applications, from augmented or virtual reality to process engineering, and from quantum computing to intelligent management. Simulation for Industry 4.0 is a guide and milestone for the simulation community, as well as those readers working to achieve the goals of Industry 4.0. The connections between simulation and Industry 4.0 drawn here will be of interest not only to beginners, but also to practitioners and researchers as a point of departure in the subject, and as a guide for new lines of study.

Welcome to the world of simulation. Simulation provides a unique way to examine the future and make intelligent decisions based on what you learn. While simulation technology has been around for decades, it is still rapidly evolving. Advances in object-oriented approaches provide rapid modeling and the flexibility to model complex systems that could not be modeled just a few years ago. And integrated 3D animation makes the creation of compelling 3D visualizations easy, and this in turn helps assure more robust, understandable models and better communication with stakeholders. Simio extends that base technology to provide a unique solution for planning and scheduling. Simio provides Wonderware MES with Finite Capacity Scheduling and Advanced Planning and Scheduling functionality. Simio's patented approach to planning and scheduling is first to automate comparing a deterministic schedule from MRP with a variation adjusted schedule to let you effectively deal with breakdowns, unplanned events and material shortages. You can then re-schedule resources to acceptable levels of risk. Data is brought into memory for fast execution. While Simio takes full advantage of your existing data to quickly and automatically build you scheduling model, that base model can also be enhanced as needed to accurately capture complexity unique to your system. The team of architects behind Simio have been leaders in simulation since the early 1980's, playing key roles in the design and development of four previous market-leading products. Simio is the result of this team applying their collective 180 years of simulation experience and using the very latest in technology and development techniques to create a new generation of simulation problem solving capability.
