Abstrakt

Over the recent years, Industry 4.0 principles, including factory simulation has increased in popularity. Where larger companies have an implementation strategy to implement this technology, small and medium-sized enterprises often do not. The key contribution of this paper is a conceptual decision-making structure that includes a developed decision-supporting tool targeted at small and medium-sized enterprises to help overcome this challenge. A performed literature review focused on manufacturing simulation frameworks, criteria for simulation solution selection, software evaluation methodologies and simulation solutions, creates the foundation for the key contribution. A company case study based on a German small and medium-sized enterprise verifies and validates the findings. It shows the value of the decision-making tool. In addition to a suggestion as the output, it triggers the process of learning and thinking, which shows more value to practitioners.
