This paper presents new developments to link OptiView and a Discrete Event production Simulation (DES) software. The OptiView Software, is designed to maximize the number of ship blocks and ship sections produced in workshops during a certain time window. We decided to combine the strong points of both, the OptiView software and the DES simulation. Indeed, the production simulation is very effective for the modelling of the movement of the gantry crane while OptiView is very powerful for the allocation of blocks and optimization of the surface. This tool was developed to support planners to improve the space utilization and workshop productivity. The combination of both methods will deliver better results for lead time and cost. [less ▲]
