The current practice and the requirements of industrial enterprises in all industrial areas require a detailed display of manufacturing systems course of events. In this paper, we studied the effects and impacts of computer simulation to improve the actual industrial production. We also verified whether the proposed simulation model and its intervention in the logistics of concrete production in a concrete manufacturing enterprise will correspond to reality.
The EXTENDSIM simulation software was used. The simulation results utilization in practice has increased the actual production several times. The simulation results indicated that it is necessary to double the intensity of company supply, i.e. a frequency of entry set to 0.15 days for each timber type. This adjustment increased the performance of unutilized devices and the whole manufacturing system several times, up to 54,475 produced building timber elements, which represents an increase of production by about 199.6 % while maintaining company flexibility.
