Selection C

Course Aim
The course will provide the students with knowledge regarding theoretical foundations for simulation of production processes, as well as some of the available software for simulation..You will also be able to
- describe the practical applications of the simulation tools in general, and in detail for civil and mining engineering projects
- apply the general tools of simulation methods to different tasks
- solve simpler problems in mining and civil engineering with simulation methods
- interpret the results from a simulated production process.

Basic simulation theory: operations research, linear programming, discrete event simulation, robot simulation, dynamic simulation, analytic simulations
How to perform a simulation study.
Computer based excercises.

Classroom lectures and exercises. Computer based excercises. Project work; the students will submit a written report and make an oral presentation of the project work. The students will work in groups and with problems related to the rock engineering/mining industry.

Written exam, grade F, 3,4,5.
Project work, written and oral presentation.
