Rationale
Decisions regarding Manufacturing development, optimization, or reorganization are driven by many factors and can be costly while the potential benefits are often hard to justify prior to implementation. Traditionally, decisions are made based upon intuition and past experience, sometimes with the support of spreadsheet tools. But these approaches can be risky and are far from modern management decision support. Simulation is one of the most powerful techniques currently being used to analyze manufacturing systems, evaluate the impact of changing various system parameters, and making the right probabilistic or multiscenario informed decision. Nowadays simulation modeling is widely used in metallurgical and manufacturing for various problems from intermediate process optimization. Even the implementation of well-understood metallurgical processes allows you to analyze not just the specific process but metallurgical system as a whole. Reducing the number of physical experiments and changes through the use of simulated experiments, for example, can be a huge advantage in personnel change and “process fatigue”.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1. Understand the importance and necessity of simulation and modeling studies in metallurgical processes
2. Comprehend the data processing and process control
3. Improve theoretical background on simulation and modeling of metallurgical systems
4. Support theoretical background by hands-on application on a modeling software
5. Apply simulation and modeling software for innovative results
6. Create a model of a given metallurgical process by considering the related control parameters.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should be submitted to GTU.
