"Hybrid simulation -based optimization of discrete parts manufacturing to increase energy efficiency and productivity";
research comprises the development of an optimization module for use in a novel production optimization tool
similar in function but not mode of operation to an Advanced Planning System
d into its
goal system. The optimization
-simulation of production systems as an evaluation function.
A hybrid simulation
and presented in preceding publications, in order
to enable a sufficient consideration of interactions between
material flow and the thermal
-physical behavior of the production system.
The size of the search space for the complex
on problem necessitates a customized two
-optimization method, which is based on a
, with the
consideration of linear constraints and extended customizations. The results, obtained in a case study
a food production
show energy savings of around 20 percent together with significant productivity gains
