Computer-based simulation is one of the most valuable aids for manufacturing systems design, yet its use remains limited. The main reason for this is that current manufacturing systems are extremely complex and the user-friendly capabilities provided even by the most advanced simulation tools are not sufficient to cope with such complexity. On this basis, the paper explores the development of an improved tool to ease and speed up simulation modelling of complex manufacturing systems. A… Expand
