The aim of the contribution is to point out the possibilities of using computer simulation for the needs of more effective metallurgical production. Like many other tools and methods, logistics also greatly contributes to maintaining the company's competitiveness and resilience to external factors such as the crisis, inflation, falling demand, and so on. One of the key methods for maintaining balance is material planning. The term “material flow” represents an organized movement of material in the manufacturing process or product circulation. It is characterized by the direction, intensity, frequency, length and performance, structure, character of transported material and transporting and handling equipment used. The most significant group, which, at the same time, forms the most relevant part of the material flow are raw and other materials and corporate work in progress and finished products. All the types of working objects are used throughout enterprises in certain amounts, internal structure, direction and with certain frequency. For a better imagination of the production process of fireclay bricks, a simulation model for the production of fireclay bricks was developed in Tecnomatix Plant Simulation. As a basis for creating simulation served the model of the manufacturing process production of fireclay bricks. Due to the high production capacities of the production process, it has been found that for the efficient production of a limited quantity and especially the firing of the building, a narrow place of the entire production process of the fireclay is the mill.Keywords: simulation, model, material flow, production, fireclay bricks
