Simulation of production processes involving cyber-physical systems

Simulation of production processes involving cyber-physical systems

It has become common practice to apply simulation during product development and production planning. The increasing demand for individualized goods requires the ability to produce in small lot sizes and therefore more flexible resources, which leads to the use of cyber-physical systems (CPS) in manufacturing. This papers aims to look at the changing requirements, pitfalls and possible solutions when applying simulation to CPS. The research is based on a case study of a large car manufacturing company that has already implemented CPS in one production line. The paper will also provide an overview of simulation types and discuss their fitness.
