A MODELLING TOOL FOR TEACHING AND LEARNING SIMULATION


ÁREA: 11. Production Engineering Education

RESUMO:
Teaching strategies at universities, regarding discrete event simulation, tend to solely focus on commercial tools, resulting on too much focus being ap-plied on syntax and semantics of a particular tool, rather than on simulation basic concepts. In this context, a tool is proposed, which allows the user to model a real system using ACD (Activity Cycle Diagrams) diagrams Â? and automatically creating the corresponding simulation program. The effort needed to develop ACD requires a complete understanding of the real system behavior, and simultaneously favors a good structure of that knowledge and a full comprehension of the simulation foundations. The aim of this paper is therefore to explore ways of focusing on learning simulation basics through a great effort on modeling issues.

PALAVRAS-CHAVE:
teaching/learning strategies, activity world view, discrete-event simulation, activity cycle diagrams (acd).
