About this book

The book shows how simulation’s long history and close ties to industry since the third industrial revolution have led to its growing importance in Industry 4.0. The book emphasises the role of simulation in the new industrial revolution, and its application as a key aspect of making Industry 4.0 a reality – and thus achieving the complete digitisation of manufacturing and business. It presents various perspectives on simulation and demonstrates its applications, from augmented or virtual reality to process engineering, and from quantum computing to intelligent management.

Simulation for Industry 4.0 is a guide and milestone for the simulation community, as well as those readers working to achieve the goals of Industry 4.0. The connections between simulation and Industry 4.0 drawn here will be of interest not only to beginners, but also to practitioners and researchers as a point of departure in the subject, and as a guide for new lines of study.


About the authors

Murat Gunal is worked as a senior lecturer at Barbaros Naval Science and Engineering Institute, in Turkey. He received his MSc and PhD degrees in Operational Research from Lancaster University, U.K. in 2000 and 2008 respectively. His main area of research is simulation methodology and applications particularly in healthcare. His PhD thesis was funded by EPSRC and titled District General Hospital Performance Simulation in which the models were used in various NHS hospitals for performance improvements. In his masters study, he wrote a dissertation on call center operations and he developed a simulation model for NTL digital TV company. He also worked in freelance consultancy projects and developed simulation models for warehouse operations, medical companies, and service systems. He took part in research projects funded by Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality, TUBITAK (Turkish Science and Technology Research Council), and Ministry of Health. He is the director of Master of Science in Naval Operational Research and teaches simulation, probability, facility planning, service science, and mathematical modelling with VBA at graduate and undergraduate levels in several universities in Istanbul since 2008.He is associate editors of Journal of Simulation, and Health Systems.
