Simulation Based Design For A Shipyard Manufacturing Process

By J. A. Joines, R. R. Barton, April Tribble, K. Kang, P. A. Fishwick, D. J. Medeiros, Mark Traband and Rebekah Lepro


Discrete event simulation can be used for virtual prototyping of new manufacturing facilities. Models built for this purpose must be easy to use, flexible, and provide a realistic graphical view of the proposed syster The DESTINY project has developed models of plate processing operations to assist shipyards in modernizing their plate fabrication lines. Configuration information for a proposed line is collected via a Web interface, which then launches a program to build and execute a simulation of the system. Graphics images and statistical reports are then returned to the user via the Web interface. The approach allows rapid analysis of technology improvements and a visualization of proposed system operation
