Application of Combined Discrete-Event Simulation and Optimization Models in Semiconductor Enterprise Manufacturing Systems
Source: Arizona State University
It is a common practice to use simulation for validating different types of control and planning algorithms. However, the science of how to rigorously integrate simulation and decision models is not well understood and becomes critically important as the complexity and scale of these models increase. In the research, the authors have developed a methodology for integrating different types of models using a Knowledge Interchange Broker (KIB).
