Industrial simulation involves making a virtual representationof a complex entity such as a ceramic company.Without needing to interact physically with the plant, thistechnique allows technical and economic performanceindicators to be evaluated, plant engineering andorganisational alternatives to be tried out and the mostsuitable solutions found for reducing investment andoperating costs and limiting industrial risks. These analyses areperformed by means of dedicated software platforms thatcreate a model of the company and its processes.
