Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The course thematically follows the course Computer Simulation of Logistics Processes I and further develops the knowledge gained in this course. The student is acquainted in more detail with the simulation software Witness and its other parts and is able to apply this knowledge in creating simulation models of logistics systems and processes. Furthermore, attention is paid to selected methods of statistical data processing, so that the graduate is able to apply these methods in the preparation of data input to the simulation model and in the evaluation of simulation results.

Teaching methods



Discrete simulation is a robust tool for solving a number of problems in technical practice, when classical analytical methods fail. The content of the course is focused on gaining a theoretical basis for discrete simulation, as well as on gaining practical experience in creating discrete simulation models of selected problems from logistics using Witness software.
