Abstract

The effectiveness of simulation techniques in the design of logistics systems is becoming increasingly emphasized nowadays. With this in mind, a system design procedure, including simulation research, is proposed in this article. An important element of the developed procedure is the generation of the initial solution using classical design and optimization methods. This allowed us to obtain a solution from the decision maker which meets accepted functional and efficiency criteria for a tested logistics system. The application of this developed procedure is illustrated in the research project SIMMAG3D. A description of the created model was provided following the literature review of methods used to support logistics systems design and selected tools for simulation research of logistics processes. Analysis of the literature review shows that the current approaches turn out to be insufficient, especially when implemented separately.
