Design and Implementation of a Component-based Simulator for the Virtual Laboratory of Computer Networks
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 12, issue 1, 2003, Pages 1~10
Recently, various network protocols have been developed to keep step with the rapid growth of Internet users. For the education of students in the computer networks classes, there have been many attempts to allow students experiment routers setting, operations and management of networks by themselves, in addition to the classroom lectures based on textbooks. One of the attempts is to install expensive real router experiment sets in laboratories for students, and one another is using router and network simulators for virtual experiments. This paper presents the design and implementation of NetSim, a scalable, component-based simulator environment for the network experimentation. NetSim expands the existing component-based JavaSim simulation tool for the education purpose, and it allows the design and experiment of various networks and protocols. For the evaluation of NetSim, it is shown that the network design and RIP-based router setting process is possible in NetSim.
A New Method to Calculate a Shortest Path for a Car-Like Robot
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 12, issue 1, 2003, Pages 11~19
Dubins showed that any shortest path of a car-like robot consists of exactly three path segment which are either arcs of circles of radius r(denoted C), or straight line segments(denoted S). Possible six types classified into two families, i.e. CSC and CCC. CSC includes 2 types(LRL and RLR) and CSC includes 4 types(LSL, RSR, LSR, RSL). This paper proposes new formulae for CSC family to find the shortest smooth path between the initial and final configurations of a car-like robot. The formulae is used for finding connection points explicitly between C\longrightarrowS and S\longrightarrowC which are necessary for real applications. The formulae have simple forms mainly because they are transformed into origin of their original coordinates of initial and target configuration, and derived from a standard forms which are a representative configuration of LSL and LSR type respectively. The proposed formulae, which are derived from the standard forms, are simple and new method.
A Case Study on the Analysis of Man/Multi-Machine System Using Simulation
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 12, issue 1, 2003, Pages 21~34
This paper deals with a case study of workload analysis of an operator in an automatic line for machining the race of ball bearing. Eleven machines and three hoppers are installed in the line which is operated by an operator. The elements of operation are separated into machine controlled elements, operator controlled elements and machine/operator controlled elements. In order to analyze the system, time and motion studies are used for gathering input data for the simulation model. The first objective of this study is to evaluate whether the workload of operator is reasonable or not. The second objective is to increase throughput by reducing tact time and the last one is to increase frequencies of inspection by reducing interval. Thus we suggest some ideas for improvement, and as a result, the throughput is improved about 9%. In spite of the increasing of throughput, the allowance of operator is also increased about 4%.
A Study on Determination of Factory Production Capacity in the Supply Chain Considering Uncertain Demand
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 12, issue 1, 2003, Pages 35~48
This paper suggests the long-term strategy of the production distribution planning considering the capacity of factory production and the uncertain demand in a supply chain. This paper determines the near optimal capacity of factory production by using the advantages of mathematical and simulation models. Also, the relationship between the capacity from the suggested model and the strategy of production and distribution in a supply chain is studied. Arena is used for modeling and analysis.
System Dynamics based Group Decision-Making Support
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 12, issue 1, 2003, Pages 49~58
There have been growing recognition on the needs of coordination of diverse activities across cross-functional business areas necessarily involving group decision-making processes. Although many group decision-making support tools and methods have been introduced to enable the collaborative processes of group decision-making, they often lack features supporting the dynamic complexity issues. This study proposes system dynamics modeling approach based on simulation techniques to deal with the group decision-making tasks having properties of dynamic complexity.
A study on the production and distribution problem in a supply chain network using genetic algorithm
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 12, issue 1, 2003, Pages 59~71
Recently, a multi facility, multi product and multi period industrial problem has been widely investigated in Supply Chain Management (SCM). One of the key issues in the current SCM research area involves reducing both production and distribution costs. The purpose of this study is to determine the optimum quantity of production and transportation with minimum cost in the supply chain network. We have presented a mathematical model that deals with real world factors and constraints. Considering the complexity of solving such model, we have applied the genetic algorithm approach for solving this model using a commercial genetic algorithm based optimizer. The results for computational experiments show that the real size problems we encountered can be solved in reasonable time.
Armed Vehicle BAttle Group Simulation : BAGSim
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 12, issue 1, 2003, Pages 73~83
This paper presents armed vehicle BAttle Group Simulation model(called BAGSim) which is an object-oriented simulation system for representing battle group engagement consisting of tanks and helicopters. BAGSim is designed in the evolutionary software life cycle approach with the Unified Software Development Process, and implemented with C++ language. BAGSim consists of a preprocessor for engagement scenario definition and simulation data set up, a main processor for triggering engagement event and advancing simulation clock, and a post processor to record simulation histories. Application scenario covers several type of engagement among command tanks, fight tanks, scout helicopters, attack helicopters, anti-tank guided missiles, and decoys. Thus, BAGSim can be effectively used as an analytic tool to examine some operational concepts and tactics, further experimentally fine tune tank design options.
