IN: Proceedings of 2008 6th International Conference on Manufacturing Research (ICMR 2008): Advances in Manufacturing Technology 22, London, Great Britain, 9-11 September 2008, vol. 2, pp.647-654.
Abstract: New discrete event simulation software available to industry has significantly reduced the modelling efforts of complex manufacturing problems. These tools enable analysts to assess the viability of potential solutions that better conform to previously defined requirements. Thus, analysts must be conversant in new technologies applications to deliver top quality solutions to the enterprises analysed. Traditional approaches of learning a new technology tend to isolate previous knowledge the analyst possesses in similar application fields and concentrate on features and strengths of the particular application under study. A new approach is therefore needed to capitalise on previous experience an analyst might have, enabling reduction of learning a new technological application by minimising the learning curve effort spent learning the technology, and increasing focus on quantitative and qualitative analysis.
