Simulation of Logistic Systems

Additional Info

  • ECTS credits: 6
  • Semester: 3
  • University: Autonomous University of Barcelona
  • Objectives:


    This subject seeks to introduce the decision making activity in the production and logistic field. This subject will introduce the students to analyze the cause-effect relationship between the elements that determine system behavior, and design mechanism to avoid the propagation of perturbation through the whole system.

  • Topics:


    Introduction to Flexible manufacturing systems; Discrete event system modeling; Statistic models in simulation; Discrete event system simulation and decision making in the logistic field.
