A Hybrid System Dynamics-Discrete Event Simulation Approach to Simulating the Manufacturing Enterprise


With the advances in the information and computing technologies, the ways the manufacturing enterprise systems are being managed are changing. More integration and adoption of the system perspective push further towards a more flattened enterprise. This, in addition to the varying levels of aggregation and details and the presence of the continuous and discrete types of behavior, created serious challenges for the use of the existing simulation tools for simulating the modern manufacturing...

Argus Invasive Species Spread Model Constructed Using Agent-based Modeling Approach and Cellular Automata


The stochastic Argus Invasive Species Spread Model (AISSM) is constructed using an Agent-Based Modeling (ABM) approach with cellular automata (CA) to account for spatial relationships and changes in those relationships over time. The model was constructed to support a wide range of geographical locations; however, this paper focuses on its application in the state of California. A timeseries of daily historical weather observations on a 6- kilometer grid was obtained for six weather variables...

A Simulation-Based Investigation of Freight Transportation Policy Planning and Supply Chains


Regional freight transportation policy planning is a difficult task, as few policy-planners have adequate tools to aid their understanding of how various policy formulations affect this complex, socio-technical system. In this paper, we develop a proof-of-concept model to simulate the impacts of public policies on freight transportation in a simulated region. We use the techniques of multi-disciplinary system design and optimization to analyze the formulation of regional freight transportation...

An Object-oriented Process Flow Approach to ARGESIM Comparisons "Flexible Assembly System" with AnyLogic


Simulator: AnyLogic is an object-orientated, general-purpose simulator for discrete, continuous and hybrid applications. It supports modelling with UML – RT and the underlying modelling technology is based on Java. Since Version 4.5 AnyLogic provides different advanced libraries as the Enterprise Library which implements often used discrete model object classes like sources, conveyors, and sinks. Model: As the Comparison addresses the possibility to define and combine submodels, the...

An Object-oriented Numerical Solution to ARGESIM Comparison “SCARA Robot” using AnyLogic


Simulator: AnyLogic is able to handle continuous, discrete and hybrid models. It is based on JAVA and therefore object-oriented. It offers drag-and-drop dialogues for the basic parts of the model’s structure as well as for animation. Everything needed is created as an instance of the ActiveObject class, starting with the ‘root’ class which represents the model to state variables (the ‘important’ variables which can appear on the left-hand side of an ODE and can be plotted), statecharts and...

An Object-oriented Hybrid Approach to ARGESIM Comparison "Crane and Embedded Control" with AnyLogic


Simulator: AnyLogic is a general-purpose simulation environment for discrete, continuous and hybrid systems. It employs UML-RT structure diagrams for building hierarchical models in object-oriented way and hybrid statecharts for behaviour specification. The generated model is Java and can be extended with user’s Java code. The simulation engine handles discrete events and dynamically changing sets of algebraic-differential equations. It automatically detects “change” (or “state”) events...

Coordination of production and ordering policies undercapacity disruption and product write-off risk: ananalytical study with real-data based simulations of a fastmoving consumer goods company


Performance impacts of ordering and production control policies in the presence of capacity disruptions are studied on the real-life example of a retail supply chain with product perishability considerations. Constraints on product perishability typically result in reductions in safety stock and increases in transportation frequency. Consideration of the production capacity disruption risks may lead to safety stock increases. This trade-off is approached with the help of a simulation model...

Supply Chain Management with Anylogic 4.0


Simulator: AnyLogic (www.xjtek.com) is a general- purpose simulator for discrete but also for continuous and hybrid applications. The modelling technology of AnyLogic is based on Java so that building simulation models using AnyLogic should be easy for experienced programmers. Model: According to the task of the comparison there are three Active Object Classes. The customer class corresponds to the wholesaler; the wholesaler class corresponds to the distributor class and to the factory...

Distributed Simulation of Hybrid Systems with HLA Support


As engineers are confronted with designing increasingly complex systems composed of interconnected components of diverse nature, traditional methods of modeling and analysis become cumbersome and inefficient. In the paper we discuss one of the approaches to modeling and distributed simulation of hybrid (discrete/continuous) systems. We use hybrid state machines, where sets of algebraic-differential equations are assigned to states, to model complex interdependencies between discrete and...
