Discrete event simulation

Discrete Event SimulationDiscrete event simulation software models a sequential process—such as a production line or queuing system—by only including events in which a change of state happens, letting you see the impact of changes on production before implementing them.

Changes to any factory are expensive. The cost isn’t just in provisioning a new manufacturing or process instrument; it’s also the losses of stopping production while the changes are deployed and tested.

The risks are that the new process isn’t an improvement over the old process and that costs could escalate—including investment in equipment and a slowdown in production—which will affect profits.
