Abstract

This chapter identifies possible strategies for utilizing real-time
simulation in the context of industrial production. The literature
review offered provides a framework to assess and map the crucial
elements of real-time simulation. Empirical data from small and
medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the manufacturing sector is used to
test the relationship between the strategic-level integration of
real-time simulation models and sustainability performance. In doing so,
the chapter develops a new way of characterizing real-time simulation
based on the different tiers of data integration, and therefore a novel
approach to defining different real-time simulation strategies. The
results show that performance enhancement is strongly connected to the
degree of data integration within production operations. Researchers and
practitioners can apply the cluster solution of real-time simulation
strategies to identify, develop, and evaluate the use of real-time
activities for sustainable value creation.
