Abstract

The basic concepts in the application of computer simulationtechniques to materials handling and distribution problems areintroduced in the context of strategic planning and option evaluation.Case studies are used to illustrate those concepts and the varioustechniques involved. The interaction required between client, materialshandling system designer, and systems analyst to maximise the benefitsfrom the use of sophisticated modelling tools is discussed.
