Lab courses

During lab courses, students work with the simulation software PLANT SIMULATION® - a module from SIEMENS Technomatix® software. With this, users can model, simulate and animate production and logistics systems; it is highly suitable to optimize business processes in industry and is used by many companies.

In this context, SYSiDAT offers the following lab courses for THWS students:

Dimensioning of checkouts and queue optimization

In this lab course, the customer flow in a supermarket, from the entrance to the exit, is simulated. The students change the length of queues in front of the checkouts and customer flows depending on the day of the week and the time of day. The task is to determine the number of checkouts required and the queue length in order to find a reasonable compromise between the customers’ waiting time and the company’s costs.

Toll station

Traffic flow at the toll station Sterzing at the Italian border is to be analysed on the basis of two models. By means of generated waiting times in front of the individual toll booths, the students decide which of the two models poses the best compromise between the waiting times for road users and the company’s costs.

Credit certificates acquired in the lab can be accredited with 0.5 ECTS for BWW/IBE students as experiment for the module Laboratory Tests.
