    Abstract

    Digital engineering tools and procedures have had a positive impact on the European manufacturing industry. However, to design a sustainable manufacturing system, a multitude of system dimensions has to be jointly optimized. We propose an integrated simulation tool helping to maximize production efficiency and to balance manual and automated work subject to ergonomics and environmental constraints. In this article, we describe the method of work, state-of-the-art review, and the structure of the SIMTER tool.
