 Title:
THE USE OF SIMULATION IN THE STUDY AND DEVELOPMENT OF MODERN MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS
 
Summary :
ABSTRACT. THE GLOBALIZATION PHENOMENA THAT ARE HAPPENING NOW COMES DEMANDING CHANGES IN THE WORLD MARKET. THESE CHANGES CAUSE THE APPEARANCE OF NEW PARADIGMS AND THEY ALREADY TREMBLE CONCEPTS CONSOLIDATED ALONG SEVERAL YEARS. IN THE SEARCH OF ADAPTING AT THE NEW TIMES, SEVERAL INCIATIVAS HAVE BEEN CREATED IN THE SEARCH OF SOLUTIONS FOR THE WORLD MARKET OF THE CENTURY 21. IN THE CURRENT MARKET, THE COMPETITIVENESS OF A COMPANY IS DIRECTLY LINKED TO THE ONE OF THE FOLLOWING FACTORS: FLEXIBILITY, QUALITY, PRODUCT COST, RELIABILITY, ETC. THE CUSTOMERS ARE MORE DEMANDING AND THE MANUFACTURE IS COMING ACROSS LOTS EVERY SMALLER TIME AND PERSONALIZED PRODUCTS. THE AGILE AND FLEXIBLE MANUFACTURE SYSTEMS COME FROM ENCOUNTER TO THIS NEW SITUATION, BECOMING AN IMPERATIVE SUBJECT TO ASSIST TO THE NEW LONGINGS OF THE CONSUMING MARKET. THE MODERN MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS, LIKE FMS, INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS, HOLONIC SYSTEMS, WHO ARE CONSTITUTED TECHNOLOGICALLY OF ELEMENTS QUITE ADVANCED AND OF GREAT COMPLEXITY, LIKE COMPUTERIZED EQUIPMENTS, ROBOTS, AGVS AND COMMUNICATION NETWORKS. THAT COMPLEXITY TURNS DIFFICULT THE TASK OF TO PROJECT SUCH SYSTEMS AND TO FORESEE THE RESULTS OF ITS CONSTRUCTION. THE FACTOR MAINTENANCE STARTS TO STILL HAVE AN LARGER IMPORTANCE, SINCE THAT ELECTRONIC APPARATUS IS QUITE SENSITIVE AND CAN SUFFER UNEXPECTED FLAWS. THANKS TO THOSE FACTORS, ALLIES TO THE FACT THAT SUCH SYSTEMS ARE EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE, IT IS IMPORTANT THE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF A STUDY DETAILED BEFORE DECIDING FOR ITS INSTALLATION. THIS ARTICLE WISH TO PRESENT PROCESS SIMULATION AS AN APPROPRIATE ALTERNATIVE, SINCE HE/SHE CAN FORESEE THE OPERATION OF THE SYSTEM UNDER SEVERAL CONDITIONS AND TO ANALYZE ITS OPERATION, SUPPLYING PRIMORDIAL DATA FOR THE DECISION PROCESS OR INSTALLATION. KEYWORDS: COMPUTER SIMULATION, HOLONIC MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS, MODERN MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS.
