Topic: Simulation
Published: 5/11/2009
Authors: Guodong Shao, Charles R. McLean, Alexander Brodsky, Paul Ammann
Abstract: Modeling and simulation (M&S) techniques are increasingly being used to solve problems and aid decision making in many different fields. Results of simulations are expected to provide reliable information for decision makers. But potential errors may ...

62. Advancing Manufacturing Research Through Competitions
Topic: Simulation
Published: 4/17/2009
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, Rajmohan Madhavan
Abstract: Competitions provide a technique for building interest and collaboration in targeted research areas. This paper will present a new competition that aims to increase collaboration amongst Universities, automation end-users, and automation manufacturer ...

63. Tradeoffs in Building a Generic Supply Chain Simulation Capability
Topic: Simulation
Published: 10/15/2008
Author: Sanjay Jain
Abstract: Building a simulation model for any large complex sys-tem requires high expertise and effort. These requirements can be reduced through building generic simulation capability that includes artifacts for facilitating the development of the simulation ...

64. Current Activities Related to the Core Manufacturing Simulation Data Standards Development Effort
Topic: Simulation
Published: 8/7/2008
Authors: Yung-Tsun Tina Lee, Frank H Riddick, Charles R. McLean, Swee Kong Leong
Abstract: The Core Manufacturing Simulation Data (CMSD) specification, developed by researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, provides neutral structures for the efficient exchange of manufacturing data in a simulation environment. The ...

65. Applying Software Product Line Technology to Simulation Modeling of Emergency Response Facility
Topic: Simulation
Published: 7/15/2008
Authors: Guodong Shao, Yung-Tsun Tina Lee
Abstract: This paper proposes an effective, reusable solution for modeling and simulation. The approach is to develop a Software Product Line (SPL) architecture that explicitly captures the commonality and variability in a family of similar simulation system ...

Topic: Simulation
Published: 7/9/2008
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 today. For many areas of manufacturing, neither representations for the information nor mechanisms for exchanging ...

67. A Real World Pilot implementation of the Core Manufacturing Simulation Information Model
Topic: Simulation
Published: 6/23/2008
Authors: Swee Kong Leong, Marcus Johansson, Bj?rn Johansson, Yung-Tsun Tina Lee, Frank H Riddick
Abstract: While software for discrete event simulation (DES) has emerged into sophisticated tools for decision support in a wide range of contexts, the need to integrate DES tools with other applications is increasing. In the industrial engineering context, si ...

68. Modeling and Simulation for Sustainable Manufacturing
Topic: Simulation
Published: 6/11/2008
Authors: Deogratias Kibira, Charles R. McLean
Abstract: With increasing frequency the news media reports that the planet is warming, pollutants are contaminating the environment, energy costs are rising, and precious natural resources are dwindling. These reports are sounding an alarm that we need to cha ...

69. ER Simulation Prototypes for Incident Management Training
Topic: Simulation
Published: 5/19/2008
Authors: Guodong Shao, Charles R. McLean
Abstract: First responders and incident management personnel need better training resources to prepare for future disasters. Live training exercises while valuable are often very expensive to organize and conduct. Training using modeling, simulation, and gamin ...

70. A Taxonomy of Homeland Security Modeling, Simulation, and Analysis Applications
Topic: Simulation
Published: 4/14/2008
Authors: Charles R. McLean, Sanjay Jain, Yung-Tsun Tina Lee
Abstract: The effective use of modeling, simulation, and analysis (MSA) applications could greatly enhance our ability to carry out the homeland security mission.  These applications can be used to evaluate vulnerabilities in the nation s critical infrast ...
