Semana de Estudos de Caso: Segundo Dia
Automatizar o Desenvolvimento de Modelos de Fabricação de Estaleiros
No segundo dia da Semana de Estudos caso, iremos olhar como "Automatizar o desenvolvimento dos modelos de fabricação de estaleiros", um artigo de Gabriel A. Burnett, Daniel A. Finke, Dr. DJ Medeiros e Dr. Mark T. Traband, todos da Universidade Estadual da Pensilvânia.
O paper pode ser visto neste local.
Neste estudo, foi utilizado o Flexsim como um dos software usados para desenvolver uma estrutura para gerar rapidamente modelos de simulação de eventos discretos, especificamente para o uso em um ambiente pequeno de estaleiro.
Os pesquisadores criaram uma interface do usuário personalizada gráfica (GUI) dentro do Flexsim para permitir que o usuário interaja com o modelo, e usou arquivos de planilhas do Excel para o envio de informações de Product Lifecycle Management Software (PLM) para o Flexsim. A interface gráfica personalizada permite ao usuário importar dados e gerar o modelo, e também gerar relatórios.
