Discrete Event Simulation for Batch Processing

Craig Alexander
2006 Proceedings of the 2006 Winter Simulation Conference  
This paper presents the modeling of batch processes using discrete event simulation. Discrete event simulation is often used for transactional-based processes; however, this paper describes an example of representing each batch as a single transaction in order to model process cycle time and utility usage. An example is provided to demonstrate the use of this method for simulating water-for-injection usage in a biopharmaceutical process.
