Abstract:

The purpose of this paper is to show the value of modelling and simulating a production line. This will allow for better configuration of production lines in the real world and produce improved output. In order to cover a realistic number of configurations, the simulation is applied to push and pull production setups of the same line. Additionally it covers the scenarios of committed and non - committed automated guided vehicles (AGVs).

Key words:
