Abstract

Simulation technology i s applicable across a distributed enterprise in the pursuit of bringing high quality products to the market in minimum time. The proliferation of computing technology and software applications now makes simulations available to many organizations in an enterprise. Significant focus has been devoted to manufacturing facility simulation and the automation o f these simulations. The focus in this paper is assembly simulation early in a product design process in a distributed environment. The authors introduce a simulation framework, activity model, distributed simulation architecture, neutral data interfaces, and a case study of the use of assembly simulation early in the design process in a collaborative distributed environment.
