  1. A Model-Based Solution to Improve the Accessibility and Affordability of Manufacturing System Simulations

    SBC: MBSE Tools, Inc.            Topic: NA

    The vision is to provide decision-makers with effective, fast, and inexpensive analysis tools to answer "What-If" and "What-Should" questions about manufacturing systems. Value Stream Mapping (VSM) is a modeling methodology with widespread contemporary use in manufacturing, and our strategy is to start with VSM as a deployment beachhead for the eventual deployment of a more generic manufacturing s ...
