Simulation has proven to be an excellent strategic tool for the enterprise. However, it can also be used as a dayto- day tactical tool on the shop floor, on the hospital floor or in the office. This paper will discuss the inherent difficulty that people face when planning and scheduling and the unique way that simulation can be used to perform realistic planning and scheduling. It will describe a hands-on approach that will help those new to simulation understand how simulation can be used as a planning and scheduling tool.
