Basic Seminar

Functional basics and introduction to simulation with Plant Simulation using a project example. You will learn the structure and process of a simulation model in Plant Simulation using an example model. The functionality of the modules is discussed and the knowledge gained is put into practice in practical exercises.

All those who want to start working on projects with Plant Simulation​.

No special previous knowledge required.

Learning goals:
You can independently create simulation models and answer typical questions when planning production plants. Can I achieve the required number of pieces per day? How much personnel is required? Is a forklift truck sufficient?

Day 1: Plant Simulation, the introduction

We take the first steps in Plant Simulation, create new models and create our own libraries.
At the end of the day...
           … you know which questions can be answered with a simulation in Plant Simulation.
           … you know the best model structure to react as flexible as possible to changes.
           … you can create your own building blocks and use them repeatedly.
           … you have conducted experiments and can interpret the results.

Day 2: Data, disturbances, personnel

We complete our example model and get to know all elementary building blocks for it. In order to depict reality, we deal with disturbances and involvement of personnel.
At the end of the day...​
          … dealing with personnel is no problem for you.​
          … you can manage data clearly in tables.​
          … you have learned how to represent disturbances in the simulation and what influence these random processes have.
          … you have your own simulation model that you can use again and again later.

Day 3: What to do if the standard objects are not sufficient?

We have reached a point where standard objects in Plant Simulation are not sufficient. Therefore we create building blocks with their own logic and individual behavior. The programming language Simtalk is learned and applied.
At the end of the day...​
          … you know how to implement new functions in the simulation model with the help of a few lines of program.​
          … you will be able to judge how much effort it takes to reproduce reality in your simulation model.

Day 4: Logistics and data evaluation

On the last day we map simple logistics tasks with the help of vehicles. In order to present the results of our work we deal with the data evaluation.
At the end of the day...
          … you can simulate goods transports with vehicles.
          … you know how to define routes within a plant and let vehicles drive optimally.
          … you can present the results of your simulation in diagrams and pictures.
          … you know the interfaces to exchange data with other programs.

Classroom seminar (4 days):

Currently there are no fixed attendance dates for the seminar Plant Simulation.

If you are interested, please contact us. We will be happy to make you an offer tailored to your personal needs.

- NEW – Live online seminar (5 days) - Conditions and dates:

We also offer this course as Live online seminar.

Based on the previous experience of the online seminars, the seminar duration per day is reduced compared to the face-to-face seminar. This results in a higher number of training days with the same content.

The trainer conducts the seminar via meeting software, presents the training material here and the tasks in Process Simulate / Process Designer are also demonstrated here.
The remote access of the participants to the ICARUS training notebooks is done via Microsoft Teams and practical exercises are performed independently. Since the notebooks are set up around the trainer's workstation, the trainer can provide assistance at any time if required.
Thus, two monitors are required for the participants.

The next dates:
     - Week 32,  August 9th - 13th 2021 (full days)

If you are interested in an online course, please contact us for an offer and information about the conditions.
