This paper promotes a unique system dynamics-discrete event simulation hybrid modelling framework. The way the hybrid model is developed is intended to simplify the modelling process and make the framework flexible to a variety of situations. In the current study, the framework is used to investigate the success possibility of introducing within-shift job rotation in the plant and its optimal frequency. The intention is to reduce worker exhaustion and by so doing increase productivity and manufacturing throughput. The improvement decisions generated from the simulation results could not have been achieved using any other means. The hybrid modelling framework presents a coherent, straightforward standardized approach that includes the main tasks in SD-DES hybrid modelling. A recommendation for future research is to test the framework’s adaptability to a variety of settings.

Hybrid Simulation comes in many shapes and forms. It has been argued by many researchers that Hybrid Simulation (HS) provides more and better insights into the real-life system as it allows modelers to assess its inherent problems from different dimensions. As a result HS is becoming an important field within the Modeling and Simulation arena. Yet we find that there is no clear and/or cohesive definition for it. Therefore, this panel paper aims to explore the concept of HS and its progression th...

Abstract The aim of this paper is to assess green logistics practices in automotive industry by using simulation method. In automotive industry logistics involves the integration of manufacturing, assembly, and distribution activities. The proposed model will assist decision makers acquire an in-depth understanding of environmental impacts and costs associated. The main issues that should be considered include: Carbon Dioxide (CO 2 ) emission, re-use and recycling of material, waste disposal and...

Abstract Increasing volatility, global competitiveness, and sales crisis all force the manufacturers to commit to the journey of world-class manufacturing performance via adopting “lean systems” to enable economic success in difficult times. Among the journey to lean, one of the hardest steps is measuring the progress of lean polices implementation especially in this highly dynamic market. This paper presents a dynamic model to evaluate the degree of leanness in manufacturing firms. The model is...

The idea of combining discrete-event simulation and system dynamics has been a topic of debate in the operations research community for over a decade. Many authors have considered the potential benefits of such an approach from a methodological or practical standpoint. However, despite numerous examples of models with both discrete and continuous parameters in the computer science and engineering literature, nobody in the OR field has yet succeeded in developing a genuinely hybrid approach which...

Operational Research models are well established as an effective tool for tackling a vast range of health care problems. Many of these models involve parameters which depend on human behaviour, and thus individuals’ characteristics or personality traits should be included. In this paper we describe a discrete event simulation model of attendance for screening for diabetic retinopathy, a sight-threatening complication of diabetes. This model takes into account the physical states, emotions, cogni...
