Special Session
Special Session on
Manufacturing Simulation and Industrial Engineering
 - MSIE 2012

28 - 31 July, 2012 - Rome, Italy

Within the 2nd International Conference on Simulation and Modeling Methodologies, Technologies and Applications - SIMULTECH 2012

MSIE is a shared event between SIMULTECH and ICINCO.



Industrial engineering is a branch of engineering dealing with the optimization of complex processes or systems, well related to business-oriented disciplines such as Operations Management. Industrial engineers use computer simulation (especially discrete event simulation), along with extensive mathematical tools and modeling and computational methods for system analysis, evaluation, and optimization. Industrial simulation can help to identify inefficiencies and examine how these may be addressed. With the integration of artificial intelligence, agents and other modeling techniques, simulation has become an effective and appropriate decision support tool in industry. The MSIE special session focuses on simulation applications for the factory of the future (e.g. transformable factories, networked factories, learning factories, digital factories) in application areas such as Automotive Industries, Aerospace, CAD/CAM/CAE, Defense Electronics, Simulation in Industrial Design, Industrial and Process Simulation, Supply Chain, Power Plants, etc.
The MSIE special session invites quality papers describing original work including research ideas, case-studies and new findings on methodological and technological aspects related to Manufacturing Simulation and Industrial Engineering, in particular papers describing methods, techniques, recent advances, applications and tools.
This is the second edition of the MSIE. The first edition, MSIE 2011, took place during SIMULTECH 2011 and attracted a large number of high-quality speakers.
