41309 Factory Modelling and Simulation

6cp; five full-day workshops in three blocks, standard, face-to-face
There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.
Recommended studies:

Students are recommended to have completed an introductory subject in the area of manufacturing engineering, such as 41301 Industrial Engineering, 41304 Production System Design, or 41053 Materials and Manufacturing Engineering A.


The simulation of factory and manufacturing processes is a crucial element of advanced manufacturing. With rapid advances in digital technologies, modelling and simulation approaches are becoming ever more powerful, to predict, evaluate and compare the performance of physical facilities and production equipment.

State-of-the-art modelling approaches and practices are used to deliver the learning experience to formulate requirements for implementation in different manufacturing scenarios. Case studies from industrial practice and hands-on demonstrations are vital elements to be used to experience the complexities of modelling and simulating production processes.
