51. Interoperability for Simulation of Sustainable Manufacturing
Topic: Simulation
Published: 2/24/2010
Authors: Guodong Shao, Nils Erik Gunnar Bengtsson, Bjorn J. Johansson
Abstract: Sustainability has become a very significant research topic, it impacts many different manufacturing industries. To achieve sustainable manufacturing, designing manufacturing systems that have less negative impact on the environment is critical. Mode ...

Topic: Simulation
Published: 1/19/2010
Authors: Deogratias Kibira, Swee Kong Leong
Abstract: This paper describes the construction of an automotive assembly line simulation where manufacturing data is defined using the Core Manufacturing Simulation Data (CMSD) information model. This work is part of the Virtual Manufacturing Environment (VME ...

53. From Simulation to Real Robots with Predictable Results: Methods and Examples
Topic: Simulation
Published: 12/1/2009
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, S Carpin, George Dimitoglou, Benjamin Balaguer
Abstract: From a theoretical perspective, one may easily argue (as we will in this chapter) that simulation accelerates the algorithm development cycle. However, in practice many in the robotics development community share the sentiment that "Simula-tion ...

Topic: Simulation
Published: 10/15/2009
Authors: Swee Kong Leong, Guodong Shao, Nils Erik Gunnar Bengtsson
Abstract: A major aerospace company operates large factories that involve thousands of component parts, subassemblies, major sub-systems, tools, fixtures, and material handling equipments to assemble commercial airplanes every day. They are considered mobile a ...

55. Input Data Management Methodology for Discrete Event Simulation
Topic: Simulation
Published: 8/26/2009
Authors: Nils Erik Gunnar Bengtsson, Guodong Shao, Yung-Tsun Tina Lee, Swee Kong Leong, Charles R. McLean, Bjorn Johansson, Anders Skoogh
Abstract: Input Data Management (IDM) is a time consuming and costly process for Discrete Event Simulation (DES) projects. In this paper, a methodology for IDM in DES projects is described. The approach is to use a methodology to identify and collect data, ...

56. Representing Layout Information in the CMSD Specification
Topic: Simulation
Published: 8/26/2009
Authors: Frank H Riddick, Yung-Tsun Tina Lee
Abstract: Developing mechanisms for the efficient exchange of information between simulations and other manufacturing tools is a critical problem. For many areas of manufacturing, neither representations for the information nor mechanisms for exchanging the in ...

57. Enabling Flexible Manufacturing Systems by Using Level of Automation as Design Parameter
Topic: Simulation
Published: 8/19/2009
Authors: Bjorn J. Johansson, Asa Fasth, Johan Stahre, Juhani Heilala, Swee Kong Leong, Yung-Tsun Tina Lee, Frank H Riddick
Abstract: Handling flexibility in an ever changing manufacturing environment is one of the key challenges for a successful industry. By using tools for virtual manufacturing, industries can analyze and predict outcomes of changes before taking action to ...

58. Recommended Practices for Homeland Security Modeling and Simulation
Topic: Simulation
Published: 8/13/2009
Authors: Sanjay Jain, Charles McLean
Abstract: This paper recommends 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: software engineering ...

59. Overview of MSA Needs for Homeland Security
Topic: Simulation
Published: 7/29/2009
Authors: Charles R. McLean, Sanjay Jain, Yung-Tsun Tina Lee
Abstract: A number of modeling, simulation and analysis (MSA) efforts have evolved to support homeland security initiatives. Various organizations involved in homeland security related work have realized the value of MSA and have funded development for their i ...

60. System Testing Using Use Cases for an ER Simulation Model
Topic: Simulation
Published: 7/29/2009
Author: Guodong Shao
Abstract: Modeling and simulation (M&S) techniques are increasingly being used to solve problems and aid decision making in many different fields. It is particularly useful for Department of Homeland Security (DHS) applications because of its feature of non-de ...
