Cloudflow - SIMCASE


Project Details
Project duration: 02/201501/2016


Abstract


The SIMCASE experiment allows engineering companies (mainly in the automotive sector but with a high potential for other industries, too) to search for improved factory layouts far more efficiently than before. This is achieved by deploying discrete-event simulation (DES) models into the cloud. The use of Cloud resources for the simulation runs significantly increases the number of evaluated configurations, ending up with better manufacturing solutions (e.g. less buffer space and less investment in buffers; better utilization of robots).
