Dieses Herausgeberwerk zeigt die Chancen, die sich für Industrieunternehmen aus einer expliziten Energiestrategie ergeben. Denn trotz intensiver Diskussionen über die Herausforderungen der Energiewende besitzen viele energieintensive Unternehmen keine eigene Energiestrategie. Dabei gibt es vielfältige und kreative Möglichkeiten, wie in den einzelnen Unternehmensbereichen interfunktionale Wechselwirkungen strategisch genutzt werden können. Die Autoren sind anerkannte Experten verschiedener Fachrichtungen aus Wissenschaft und Praxis, die politische, wirtschaftliche, sozio-kulturelle, technische und rechtliche Rahmenbedingungen und deren Veränderung durch die Energiewende erörtern. Darauf aufbauend werden die Implikationen der veränderten Rahmenbedingungen auf die unterschiedlichen Bereiche des Unternehmens erörtert und daraus mündende industrielle Energiestrategien dargestellt.

Simulationsmodelle bilden die Realität in einem digitalen Modell ab. Unterschiedliche Produktionsszenarien können so miteinander verglichen werden, ohne dass die reale Produktion gestört wird. In der Regel wird dann das Szenario umgesetzt, das ingenieurwissenschaftliche Zielsetzungen, wie den funktionellen Betrieb des Produktions- und Logistiksystems, möglichst gut erfüllt. Die Berücksichtigung von Kosten wird dabei vielfach in der Simulation vernachlässigt, obwohl der Betrieb der genannten Systeme stets mit Kosten verbunden ist. Eine einfache Bewertung der simulativ ermittelten Faktorverbräuche mit konstanten Kostensätzen greift diesbezüglich in der Regel zu kurz. Das vorliegende Werk zeigt unterschiedliche Möglichkeiten auf, wie angemessene Kostengrößen mit Hilfe der Simulation ermittelt und in der Simulation selbst berücksichtigt werden können. Hierzu wird eine Topologie entwickelt. Zu einzelnen Ausprägungen der Topologie werden Anwendungsbeispiele diskutiert.

Teaches basic and advanced modeling and simulation techniques to both undergraduate and postgraduate students and serves as a practical guide and manual for professionals learning how to build simulation models using WITNESS, a free-standing software package. This book discusses the theory behind simulation and demonstrates how to build simulation models with WITNESS. The book begins with an explanation of the concepts of simulation modeling and a “guided tour” of the WITNESS modeling environment. Next, the authors cover the basics of building simulation models using WITNESS and modeling of material-handling systems. After taking a brief tour in basic probability and statistics, simulation model input analysis is then examined in detail, including the importance and techniques of fitting closed-form distributions to observed data. Next, the authors present simulation output analysis including determining run controls and statistical analysis of simulation outputs and show how to use these techniques and others to undertake simulation model verification and validation. Effective techniques for managing a simulation project are analyzed, and case studies exemplifying the use of simulation in manufacturing and services are covered. Simulation-based optimization methods and the use of simulation to build and enhance lean systems are then discussed. Finally, the authors examine the interrelationships and synergy between simulation and Six Sigma. Emphasizes real-world applications of simulation modeling in both services and manufacturing sectors Discusses the role of simulation in Six Sigma projects and Lean Systems Contains examples in each chapter on the methods and concepts presented Process Simulation Using WITNESS is a resource for students, researchers, engineers, management consultants, and simulation trainers.

Im Bereich der industriellen Dienstleistungen kommt dem produktivitätsorientierten Management eine zentrale Bedeutung zu. Die vorliegende Arbeit erklärt das Verhalten von Dienstleistungsproduktionssystemen unter Berücksichtigung des menschlichen Arbeitsverhaltens und bildet die Wirkungsweise auf Basis von Kennlinien ab. Hierzu wird zum einen ein produktionstheoretisches Modell und zum anderen ein systemdynamisches Modell der industriellen Dienstleistungsproduktion entwickelt.

“...a much-needed handbook with contributions from well-chosen practitioners. A primary accomplishment is to provide guidance for those involved in modeling and simulation in support of Systems of Systems development, more particularly guidance that draws on well-conceived academic research to define concepts and terms, that identifies primary challenges for developers, and that suggests fruitful approaches grounded in theory and successful examples.” Paul Davis, The RAND Corporation Modeling and Simulation Support for System of Systems Engineering Applications provides a comprehensive overview of the underlying theory, methods, and solutions in modeling and simulation support for system of systems engineering. Highlighting plentiful multidisciplinary applications of modeling and simulation, the book uniquely addresses the criteria and challenges found within the field. Beginning with a foundation of concepts, terms, and categories, a theoretical and generalized approach to system of systems engineering is introduced, and real-world applications via case studies and examples are presented. A unified approach is maintained in an effort to understand the complexity of a single system as well as the context among other proximate systems. In addition, the book features: Cutting edge coverage of modeling and simulation within the field of system of systems, including transportation, system health management, space mission analysis, systems engineering methodology, and energy State-of-the-art advances within multiple domains to instantiate theoretic insights, applicable methods, and lessons learned from real-world applications of modeling and simulation The challenges of system of systems engineering using a systematic and holistic approach Key concepts, terms, and activities to provide a comprehensive, unified, and concise representation of the field A collection of chapters written by over 40 recognized international experts from academia, government, and industry A research agenda derived from the contribution of experts that guides scholars and researchers towards open questions Modeling and Simulation Support for System of Systems Engineering Applications is an ideal reference and resource for academics and practitioners in operations research, engineering, statistics, mathematics, modeling and simulation, and computer science. The book is also an excellent course book for graduate and PhD-level courses in modeling and simulation, engineering, and computer science.

The first edition of this book was the first text to be written on the Arena software, which is a very popular simulation modeling software. What makes this text the authoritative source on Arena is that it was written by the creators of Arena themselves. The new third edition follows in the tradition of the successful first and second editions in its tutorial style (via a sequence of carefully crafted examples) and an accessible writing style. The updates include thorough coverage of the new version of the Arena software (Arena 7.01), enhanced support for Excel and Access, and updated examples to reflect the new version of software. The CD-ROM that accompanies the book contains the Academic version of the Arena software. The software features new capabilities such as model documentation, enhanced plots, file reading and writing, printing and animation symbols.
