Course Objective                                                                                                                            (Please TYPE or PRINT clearly)
This course is especially designed for executives responsible for improving and optimizing the                            Please register the following person(s) for the course as follows: -
Logistics and Manufacturing operations of their companies. The participants would find the contents
state-of-the-art, and the course helpful in becoming proficient in not only simulation model building,             Simulation Modeling for Logistics & Manufacturing Facilities
but also in using it as part of an operations/process improvement study.
During the course, the participants would have the opportunity to apply their newly acquired             1.       (Dr / Mr / Ms*)
simulation knowledge to build and analyze simulation models. They would also be exposed to some                   Designation
real-life case studies to illustrate the model-building concepts learned.                                         Standard / NTU Alumni / Group *

The bulk of the time in the course is spent on discrete event simulation modeling. This module           2.       (Dr / Mr / Ms*)
covers, in detail, simulation model building aspects of discrete systems (such as manufacturing and               Designation
logistics facilities, supply-chains). In this module we also demonstrate how computer simulation is               Standard / NTU Alumni / Group *
used to successfully model, analyze and improve systems under study. Simulation software                          Please provide IC / Passport Number if NTU Alumni
(ARENA) is used to demonstrate building and executing the models.                                                 Lunch: Chinese / Muslim / Vegetarian *
The second module covers the simulation life cycle analysis, and goes over issues like model
verification and validation. It also looks into the statistical analysis of simulation model output.     3.       (Dr / Mr / Ms*)
Topics covered during the course include:                                                                         Designation
