In this paper, researchers focus on the real-time management of turnaround operations, and assess the relative merits and limitations of so-called dispatching rules.
The aircraft turnaround process consists of "ground handling operations" that are required to set an aircraft ready for its subsequent departure. This work focuses on enhancing the planning and real-time allocation of apron operations that are used to turn around an aircraft between two consecutive flights.
Order picking is a labor-intensive operation and contributes significantly to overall operational costs in a warehouse. This research develops a simulation model to evaluate the performance of order picking with varying numbers of autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) and pickers, considering both traditional and cross-aisled warehouse layouts.
Material requirements planning (MRP) is one of the main production planning approaches implemented in enterprise resource planning systems, and one that is broadly applied in practice. In this paper, a multi-stage and multi-item production system is simulated by considering random customers’ demands and other sources of uncertainty.
In this paper, researchers used a discrete event simulation to evaluate the performance of outlier correction methods and extended the forecast generation process to increase forecast accuracy.
This article introduces an innovative approach of risk and opportunity management to help managers in their decision-making processes. The proposed “physics of decision” approach enables managers to deal with the considered system’s performance trajectory by viewing and assessing the impact of potentialities (risks and opportunities).
The storage of electrical energy is becoming increasingly important to satisfy the demand through renewable energy sources. In this paper, a continuous and discrete simulation of a pumped thermal energy storage (PTES) system are compared with respect to their computational time and accuracy.
In this paper, researchers developed a discrete event simulation model of a Dutch phone and subscription retailer's queueing system. The goal of simulation modeling was to learn what improvements can be suggested to reduce the waiting time in shops.
