The basic concepts in the application of computer simulation techniques to materials handling and distribution problems are introduced in the context of strategic planning and option evaluation. Case studies are used to illustrate those concepts and the various techniques involved. The interaction required between client, materials handling system designer, and systems analyst to maximise the benefits from the use of sophisticated modelling tools is discussed.
