    Summary form only given. Klaus Meder will demonstrate how the increasing society's request for a widespread mobility together with the need to save energy resources generates opportunities for a broad spectrum of new electronic systems - as well as some challenges for the KETs Design, semiconductor technologies and assembly. Bosch is the leading automotive supplier worldwide with more than 280 man... View full abstract»

  • Model generation in SLX using CMSD and XML stylesheet transformations

    This article introduces a novel methodology for automatic simulation model generation. The methodology is based on the usage of XML stylesheet transformations for generating the actual source code of the target simulation system. It is therefore especially well-suited for all language-based simulation systems. The prerequisite for using the methodology is an appropriate representation of the syste... View full abstract»

  • Simulation-based distributed fuzzy control for WIP in a multi-variety and small-batch discrete production system with one tightly coupled cell

    This paper examines a multi-variety and small-batch production system with a tightly coupled cell. Using production data analysis, various random factors and constraints in a system with a tightly coupled bottleneck cell caused higher work-in-process (WIP) inventory levels and longer cycle times. Aiming to resolve these production problems, a two-dimensional distributed fuzzy controller with two c... View full abstract»

    When simulation analyses first became at least somewhat commonplace (as opposed to theoretical and research endeavors often considered esoteric or exploratory), simulation studies were usually not considered “projects” in the usual corporate-management context. When the evolution from “special research investigation” to “analytical project intended to improve cor... View full abstract»

  • Simulation of liquid metal logistics in primary aluminum industry

    Production planning in the primary aluminum industry is a critical task, due to heavy imbalances among the main processes. As liquid production (reduction) has a very continuous and stable output, solidification at different lines have different operational paths (batch/continuous), shutdowns and variations in rates. Due to material's nature (hot liquid metal), it is not possible to maintain a buf... View full abstract»

    This article introduces a novel methodology for web based distribution of simulation experiments. The approach is related to themes such as web based applications, cloud computing or applications as a service, which have been recurring topics in scientific papers for years. The methodology is based on automatic model generation, initialization, and result analysis under usage of the CMSD standard.... View full abstract»

    The development of control strategies for the Smart Grid, the future electricity grid, relies heavily on modeling and simulation for being able to evaluate and optimize these strategies in a cost efficient, secure and timely way. To generate sound simulation results, validated and established simulation models have to be used. If these models are not implemented using the same technology, the comp... View full abstract»

    This paper discusses the development of a discrete-event simulation model for an integrated emergency post. This post is a collaboration between a general practitioners post and an emergency department within a hospital. We present a generalized and flexible simulation model, which can easily be adapted to several emergency departments as well as to other departments within the hospital, as we dem...

  • Wip control and calibration in a wafer fab

    In this paper, a priority matrix table is used to assign priority to lots according to due date and workload information with the objective to keep lots going through the fab at the right pace to maintain WIP balance. Besides that, a WIP calibration method is proposed to recover WIP balance due to events such as unpredictable tool failure. The simulation results demonstrate that the proposed prior...

  • Wip balance and due date control in a wafer fab with low and high volume products

    For a customer-oriented wafer fab, low volume products such as development lots or customer samples are often more critical than high volume products with regard to cycle time and delivery reliability because of due date commitment. In this study, a global rule combining WIP balance and due date control is developed for a wafer fab with low and high volume products. The purpose is to figure out th... View full abstract»

    With current increasing demands for outpatient medical services, healthcare providers have had to analyze methods for providing safety and quality care services under constrained resources. A long waiting-time has a severe impact not only on the patients' satisfaction but also on the physical conditions of the patients, who receive invasive treatment in ambulatory care facilities. Patients treated... View full abstract»
