Construction process simulation using a standardized configuration and model

Computer simulation has been used extensively to aid in designing the products of projects for some 40 years. Applications have been especially useful in the design of dynamic systems such as conveyor systems, service facilities, industrial production, and business operations. They have provided valuable insights into these systems at a cost far less than either pilot operations or facility modifications on a cut-and-try basis to achieve design objectives.
