Discrete-event simulation is an established tool for the design and management of large-scale mail sortation and distribution systems. Because the design of distribution facilities integrates many of the same or functionally similar components, adopting an object-oriented approach to simulation promises significant economies. Instead of coding and verifying(More)
This presentation will focus on how simulation was used in supporting the business case for RFID. Recently, a pilot study at several Allen-Bradley facilities evaluated RFID (radio frequency identification) use in the production and distribution of circuit boards. The pilot consisted of RFID tag application to three different products manufactured in the(More)
Dofasco Inc. needed a dynamic decision support tool in order to evaluate its primary steelmaking operations. Before working with Rockwell Automation, Dofasco used spreadsheet models and smaller simulations to evaluate capital expenditures at its steel mill. It was determined that modeling all of Dofasco's primary steel operations using Rockwell Software's(More)
