Using transient simulations to improve field service systems for semiconductor manufacturing

Abstract

Simulation models of complex real world systems require long computation times for producing reliable estimates of the system performance measures of interest. However, it has been observed in the simulation-based optimization literature that the order and ranking relationship between solutions often become significant very early in the simulation runs, even during the transient state. In this paper we propose a method for using very short transient simulation runs to compare different alternatives which can be quite useful in metaheuristics such as genetic algorithms. We present initial experimentation results for a simple problem system (M/M/1) and a field service system design problem from semiconductor industry.
