Abstract

The article deals with the development of computer simulation with a focus on the use in the field of logistics. Computer simulation has passed since the last century long development. The beginnings associated with general program tools with a focus on random number generators have gradually replaced systems that are specially and exclusively oriented to modular, block creation of computer simulation models. At present, it is common and obvious that the computer simulation model is made up of blocks that perform precisely defined functions. Within logistics, the use of computer simulation is common and desirable. Logistics is made up of elements such as purchase - production - sales in relation to other identical chains. This chain allows simulation to use the same principle of creating computer simulation models that are made up of typed blocks such as input, queue, service device, output. Principles of computer simulation models still remain the same but changing the view of the resulting display and conduct simulations which enable new and realistic 3D and realistically oriented computer simulation systems.
