Discrete simulation development for a proposed shipyard steel processing facility
This paper describes the efforts required to convert conceptual designs and undefined processes for a proposed advanced steel processing shipyard facility into a discrete event simulation. Modeling of a completely non-existent entity poses many difficulties, yet the results can still be beneficial. The lack of actual production data and corresponding business rules, causes an in-depth review of all available information combined with that which can be extrapolated from vendor specification sheets or human experience. Most of the equipment required for this advanced processing facility will be custom built to suit the needs of this highly technical complex. This facility which will ultimately support construction of vessels, was driven by high expectations of improved production efficiencies. The model is expected to support not only the preconstruction design phases of the building, but also to serve as a post-construction production planning tool.
