Simulation Modeling for Systems Engineers


Simulation modeling is often associated with industrial engineering and operations research, but it has much to offer the systems engineer. It is being used to plan, design, manage and upgrade systems in a wide range of industries, including manufacturing, healthcare, energy, logistics & transportation, retail and services.

The predictive and analytical nature of the technology make it a powerful tool for the engineer. This presentation will give a broad overview of the history, concepts, technology and uses of simulation models.

Through case studies, live model demonstrations and informative materials, attendees will gain an appreciation for how these models, including digital twins, can be applied to specific systems engineering experience areas.




Rainer Dronzek has held engineering and management positions in the aerospace, oil & gas and consulting industries. He began his systems engineering career on the Space Shuttle Program at the Kennedy Space Center, where he was first introduced to the art and science of simulation modeling. He has managed projects and standing teams providing modeling services, founded a simulation consulting firm, and organized simulation events and conferences. He is the Sales Director – North America for The AnyLogic Company and holds a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Bradley University.
