Simulation has long been a significant and powerful force for the improvement of manufacturing operations. More recently, it has been used to increase the efficiency, efficacy, and economy of service operations. In this case study, we describe the valuable contributions simulation made to the improvement of operations at numerous business locations of a(More)
Discrete-event process simulation, originally the benefactor of the manufacturing sector of the economy, has expanded aggressively into the service sector of the economy, much to the benefit and gratitude of its new cadre of industrial engineers and management strategists. The study documented in this paper originated within a large health-care insurance(More)
This presentation discusses modeling challenges, approach, and findings for the throughput capacity verification of a parking system. This system consists of a totally automated four-story parking structure located next to a train station. Demand variations through the day for parking and retrieving cars are verified using simulation and equipment(More)
The most venerable and the most highly varied general application area in which simulation has frequently and repeatedly proved its economic value is the manufacturing sector of the economy. Manufacturing applications of simulation have included attention to complex issues of equipment and/or worker downtime, problems of facility layout, work and line(More)
