This workbook features a participatory style of learning. You don't sit and read the book without a computer loaded with SIMIO. We expect your active participation in using SIMIO as you turn the pages. We try to carry on a conversation with you. Our belief is that simulation is not a spectator sport. This edition of the workbook has an evolved structure based on use and experience. More emphasis is placed on "why" modeling choices are made, to supplement the "how" in using SIMIO in simulation. In Chapter 1, we present fundamental simulation concepts, independent of SIMIO which can be skipped for those who already understand these fundamentals. In Chapters 2 through 6, concentrates of the use of the Standard Library Objects in SIMIO. You can do a lot of simulation modeling without resorting to more complex concepts. A key part of those chapters is learning to identify/separate the data in a model from the model structure. Chapter 7 introduces the fundamental topic of "processes," which we frequently employ in the following chapters. Chapters 8 and 9 concentrate on the important topics of flow and capacity. Chapter 10 introduces optimization in the context of supply chain modeling. Chapter 11 presents the influence of bias and variability on terminating and steady-state simulation. Chapter 12 introduces SIMIO materials handling features. Chapter 13 extends the use of resources while Chapters 14 and 15 describes the use of workers including the detailed services provided by task sequences and their animation. Chapter 16 details the simulation of call centers with reneging, balking, and cost optimization. Chapters 17 through 20 presents object-oriented simulation capabilities in SIMIO. Chapter 17 builds a model out of an existing model (we call it sub-modeling). Chapter 18 describes the anatomy of an existing SIMIO and in Chapter 19 we build a new object by "sub-classing" an existing object. In Chapter 20 a new object is designed and built from a base SIMIO object and its creation is contrasted with standard SIMIO object. Chapter 21 presents some of the continuous modeling features in SIMIO. Chapters 22 and 23 demonstrates the power of object-oriented simulation in the modeling supply chains and process planning respectively. We include an appendix on input modeling, although SIMIO does not provide software. The book is designed to be read from chapter to chapter, although it is possible to pick out certain concepts and topics. Some redundancy is helpful in learning. By the time you have finished this book you should be well-prepared to build models in SIMIO and to understand the virtues of different modeling approaches. Like SIMIO itself, this workbook has been designed for a variety of student, teacher, and practitioner audiences. For example, if you are interested in manufacturing, you will want to be sure to study data-based modeling in Chapter 5, assemply and packaging in Chapter 6, the workstation in Chapter 9, and material handling in Chapter 12. If you are interested in logistics, don't miss modeling of distances in Chapter 3, flow and capacity in Chapter 8, inventories and supply chains in Chapter 10, and free space travel in Chapter12. If you are interested in healthcare, be sure to review scheduled arrivals in Chapter 8, resource decision making in Chapter 13, mobile workers in Chapter 14, and animated people and task sequences in Chapter 15. If object-oreinted simulation is your interest, make sure to study Chapters 17 through 20, which describes how SIMIO provides composition and inheritance to create objects. Manufacting examples and examples from the service sector are used throughout. Also we pay some attention to input modeling (including input sensitivity) and output analysis (including confidence intervals and optimization). This workbook provides comprehensive and in-depth discussion of simulation modeling with SIMIO.

Enjoy learning a key technology. Undergraduates and beginning graduates in both first and second simulation courses have responded positively to the approach taken in this text, which illustrates simulation principles using the popular Simio product. This full color version takes full advantage of the color in the animation and screenshots. Content: This textbook explains how to use simulation to make better business decisions in application domains from healthcare to mining, heavy manufacturing to supply chains, and everything in between. It is written to help both technical and non-technical users better understand the concepts and usefulness of simulation. It can be used in a classroom environment or in support of independent study. Modern software makes simulation more useful and accessible than ever and this book illustrates simulation concepts with Simio, a leader in simulation software. Author Statement: This book can serve as the primary text in first and second courses in simulation at both the undergraduate and beginning-graduate levels. It is written in an accessible tutorial-style writing approach centered on specific examples rather than general concepts, and covers a variety of applications including an international flavor. Our experience has shown that these characteristics make the text easier to read and absorb, as well as appealing to students from many different cultural and applications backgrounds. A first simulation course would probably cover Chapter 1 through 8 thoroughly, and likely Chapters 9 and 10, particularly for upper class or graduate level students. For a second simulation course, it might work to skip or quickly review Chapters 1-3 and 6, thoroughly cover all other chapters up to Chapter 11, and use Chapters 12, 13, and Appendix A as reinforcing assignments. The text or components of it could also support a simulation module of a few weeks within a larger survey course in programs without a stand-alone simulation course (e.g., MBA). For a simulation module that's part of a larger survey course, we recommend concentrating on Chapters 1, 4, and 5, and then perhaps lightly touch on Chapters 7 and 8. The extensibility introduced in Chapter 11 could provide some interesting project work for a graduate student with some programming background, as it could be easily linked to other research topics. Likewise, Chapter 13 could be used as the lead-in to some advanced study or research in the latest techniques in simulation-based planning and scheduling. Appendix A could be used as student assignments or challenge problems in an applications-focused or independent study course. Supplemental course material is also available on-line. Fourth Edition Changes: The new fourth edition is written for Simio Version 9 and later, the latest in simulation technology. In this edition, we added a new chapter on Miscellaneous Modeling Topics including sections on Searching, Balking and Reneging, Task Sequences, Event-based Decision logic, the Flow Library, the Extras Library, and Experimentation using Parallel and Cloud Processing. We also updated and promoted our former appendix on Simulation-based Scheduling to a chapter. And we added a new appendix referencing previous Simio Student Simulation Competition problems. In addition, the coverage of animation, input analysis and output analysis has been significantly expanded. End-of-chapter problems have been improved and expanded, and we have incorporated many reader suggestions. We have reorganized the material for an improved flow, and have updates throughout the book for many of the new Simio features recently added such as the properties window, and GIS mapping support.

Winner of 2013 IIE/Joint Publishers Book-of-the-Year Award Emphasizing a quantitative approach, Supply Chain Engineering: Models and Applications provides state-of-the-art mathematical models, concepts, and solution methods important in the design, control, operation, and management of global supply chains. The text provides an understanding of how companies plan, source, make, and deliver their products to create and/or maintain a global competitive advantage. It emphasizes application of operations research models and methods to optimize the various components of an integrated supply chain. The authors have carefully constructed the book so that it is not so "micro" in its focus that the perspective on the larger business problem is lost, nor is it so "macro" in its treatment of that business context that it fails to develop students’ appreciation for, and skills to solve, the tactical problems that must be addressed in effectively managing flows of goods in supply chains. Building students’ knowledge of the first principles of supply chain engineering, the book covers the traditional issues in operations, logistics, and supply chain management—forecasting demand, managing inventories, managing transportation, and locating facilities. It also includes a number of new optimization tools such as risk pooling, for addressing these problems, based on recent research. In addition, the authors’ treatment of managing customer-supplier relations supplies a fresh perspective that draws on recent research using multiple criteria optimization methods. Moreover, the chapter on managing risks in supply chains presents important problems that extend beyond the traditional treatment of supply chain management. Building a bridge between theory and practice, the authors pull all of these themes together in the culminating chapter that solidifies students’ understanding of managing global supply chains.
