Issue #10: Digging Up Cost Savings with Simulation

The mining of minerals and coal have been cyclic industries for over a century with global periods of boom and bust. During the last 5 years a number of factors have combined to change the dynamics within the industry.  With significantly reduced product pricing, volume alone is no longer a sure route to profit.  

In this issue leading mining simulation experts from every corner of the globe share their insights about the value of simulation in today's economic climate.

Issue #9: Eliminating Waste with Lean Simulation

Lean is about teams and organizations working together in the continuous pursuit of perfection (even if we never quite get there). Improvement means change, which therefore means risk, as we might try something that doesn’t work (or has side effects). Too many organizations create overly-cautious leaders who make employees afraid to try anything new because they might stumble or fail. Lean gives us mindsets and tools to minimize the risks involved with change while moving progress forward.

- Mark Graban

In this issue you will learn lean how leaders minimize risk in their pursuit of perfect.

Issue #4:  Agent Based Modeling with Arena

Lots of attention has been given to agent based simulation problems.  At the 2015 Winter Simulation Conference, Dr. Averill Law stated that agent based is just a special case of discrete event simulation.  We couldn't agree more.

In this issue we share some insights into how Arena can be used to solve agent based problems.
