Abstract : -Simulation technology is at such a state that it is becoming increasingly risky not to use its capabilities in many of our project and process improvement activities. -We are now able to create very realistic models that behave much like the actual system or processes that the system represents (whether current or future state). The need to accurately depict these processes and ensure valid decision making has increased. -This presentation will demonstrate a number of computerized 3D models from actual aircraft maintenance programs, production lines, lean implementations, etc., and share the lessons learn from each. -The overall purpose is to encourage attendees to adopt simulation technology into their programs and help visualize and realize its cost, schedule, quality, and culture-oriented benefits. -As an industry best practice, simulations help improve communication of proposed implementation plans (thus accelerating approval) and increase understanding with those implementing the plan (thus accelerating acceptance and development).
