This article presents several model automation strategies used to improve the modeling operations such as data maintenance, model analysis and model visualization. There are several new products that have emerged in academics and industry that help reduce the costs of simulation and provide a solution that obtains more ROI from a new and/or existing simulation model. In addition these modeling techniques provide the capability to make models an operational component of a manufacturing system. As an operational component, models can provide planned work schedules, prediction estimates, and an operational decision tool that engineers and managers can used in making better operational decisions.
