Abstract [en]

The highly competitive automobile market requires automotive companies to become efficient by continuously improving their production systems. This paper presents a case study where simulation-based optimization (SBO) was employed as a step within a Value Stream Mapping event. The aim of the study was to promote the use of SBO to strengthen the continuous improvement work of the company. The paper presents all the key steps performed in the study, including the challenges faced and a reflection on how to introduce SBO as a powerful tool within the lean continuous improvement standards.
