主讲内容：Modelling and simulation for assisting decision making in manufacturing The presentation will cover the basics of modelling and simulation as used for assisting industries in reaching decisions with regards their operations. The lecture will discuss the rationale for building models, the requirements with regards the data and the phases that someone goes through when developing a model. Examples on Discrete Event Simulation and System Dynamics models will be presented.
