Summary

Complex situations and systems can be studied by using adequate models in simulation. An important aspect of models and the simulation software is the ability to use a wide range of possible input parameters. The simulation described in this paper is based on agile manufacturing by using transport robots and cheap reconfigurable production platforms, called equiplets. This setup makes agile manufacturing of different products in parallel possible.The simulation showed the maximum load of such a production environment as well as a proof of concept for the distributed approach for transport used.
