21. A Component-based Approach for Manufacturing Simulation
Topic: Simulation
Published: 3/2/2011
Authors: Frank H Riddick, Yung-Tsun Tina Lee, Deogratias Kibira, Stephen B. Balakirsky
Abstract: Manufacturing systems can be very complex and are often costly to develop and operate. Simulation technology has been shown to be an effective tool for optimizing manufacturing system design, operations, and maintenance procedures. However, each manu ...

22. Best Practices for Modeling, Simulation and Analysis (MS&A) for Homeland Security Applications
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7655
Topic: Simulation
Published: 3/2/2011
Authors: Sanjay Jain, Charles McLean
Abstract: This report recommends best practices for development and deployment of modeling, simulation and analysis (MS&A) tools for homeland security applications. The set of recommended practices applicable to any MS&A application includes: modeling practi ...

23. Mixed Pallet Stacking: An Overview and Summary of the 2010 PerMIS Special Session
Topic: Simulation
Published: 2/4/2011
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, Henrik I. Christensen, Thomas Rollin Kramer, Pushkar Kolhe, Frederick M Proctor
Abstract: Stacking boxes of various sizes and contents on pallets (i.e. making mixed pallets) is a primary method of preparing goods for shipment from a warehouse to a store or other distant site. A special session of the 2010 PERMIS workshop was held to exami ...

24. Metrics for Mixed Pallet Stacking
Topic: Simulation
Published: 1/31/2011
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, Thomas Rollin Kramer, Frederick M Proctor
Abstract: Stacking boxes of various sizes and contents on pallets (i.e. making mixed pallets) is a primary method of preparing goods for shipment from a warehouse to a store or other distant site. Many billions of dollars are spent each year in preparing, ship ...

25. A Prototype of Modeling and Simulation for Sustainable Machining
Topic: Simulation
Published: 1/19/2011
Authors: Guodong Shao, Eric Chernow, Deogratias Kibira, Kevin W Lyons
Abstract: Modeling and simulation techniques have frequently been utilized to analyze manufacturing processes. The simulation of Numerically Controlled (NC) machine tools is preferred to real machine testing of the programs due to the potential savings of time ...

26. NIST Simulation of E-beam Inspection and CD-SEM in-line metrology: Final Report
Topic: Simulation
Published: 1/1/2011
Author: John S Villarrubia
Abstract: This report summarizes results from a two-year project to develop a simulator for electron beam inspection and critical dimension scanning electron microscope (SEM) inline metrology tools. The development attempts to improve on prior simulators and d ...

27. A Knowledge Sharing Framework for Homeland Security Modeling and Simulation
Topic: Simulation
Published: 12/10/2010
Authors: Sanjay Jain, Charles W. Hutchings, Yung-Tsun Tina Lee, Charles McLean
Abstract: Modeling and simulation (M&S) tools and capabilities can enable understanding of the complex nature of systems in various homeland security domains. A coordinated effort across government, industry, and academia would advance capabilities in this imp ...

28. TOWARDS CONTINUOUSLY UPDATED SIMULATION MODELS: Combining Automated Raw Data Collection and Automated Data Processing
Topic: Simulation
Published: 12/10/2010
Authors: John L Michaloski, Anders Skoogh, Nils Bengtsson
Abstract: Discrete Event Simulation (DES) is a powerful tool for efficiency improvements in production. However, instead of integrating the tool in the daily work of production engineers, companies apply it mostly in single-purpose studies such as major invest ...

29. Core Manufacturing Simulation Data - UML Model Standard
Topic: Simulation
Published: 11/24/2010
Authors: Yung-Tsun Tina Lee, Frank H Riddick
Abstract: This product, Core Manufacturing Simulation Data (CMSD), addresses interoperability between simulation systems and other manufacturing applications. The CMSD information model is a standard representation for core manufacturing simulation data. It pr ...

30. Using Simulation To Assess The Effectiveness of Pallet Stacking Methods
Topic: Simulation
Published: 11/19/2010
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, Frederick M Proctor, Thomas Rollin Kramer, Pushkar Kolhe, Henrik I. Christensen
Abstract: Stacking objects onto pallets is the most widely used method of bulk shipping, accounting for over 60% of the volume of goods shipped worldwide. Due in part to the wide variation in size, shape and weight of objects to be palletized, successful stack ...
