Characteristics of the systems of computer modelling and simulation of production processes
The article presents an analysis of possibilities offered by the use of modelling and simulation method in production management, by presenting its essence, types and examples of production process models. In addition, the article presents the characteristics of computer modelling and simulation systems, which help to streamline production processes. The most commonly used programs such as AnyLogic, ShowFlow 2 and Rockwell Arena were described in detail. The concepts of modelling and simulation have been also clarified.
