Firm’s efficiency and competitiveness are two important challenges in today’s global market that have motivated many manufacturing firms to plan novel manufacturing management strategies. Nowadays, simulation models have been used to assess different aspects of manufacturing systems. This paper introduces a welding unit of a manufacturing line of heater production as a case study and the basic application of the ARENA software. The main goal of this paper is increasing the productivity of the production line by using computer simulation. To achieve this goal, three various scenarios are compared and suggested to obtain the better improvement in productivity.
