One way how to study the real behaviour of industrial processes or systems in practice is to use computer simulations. We can simulate different conditions and find optimal parameters without increased risk. The right application of these parameters in practice can produce the desired results. The advantage is not only the safe verification of various variants of the simulated parameters, but also the possibility of their use in different areas of industrial practice. This article deals with an example of the use of simulation in the production of the selected automobile cooling system component. The simulation model was created to design the correct number of Kanban circuits to shorten production lead time and to reduce inter-operational supplies. The suitability of using computer simulations to optimize the production processes and systems in practice can be confirmed based on comparison of the results from the computer simulation with results achieved in practice.
Key words: Dynamic Simulation / Optimisation / Manufacturing Processes / Kanban
