The fundamental purpose of building simulation models is because it is often impossible to experiment with real-world systems. In terms of our networked robots in the automotive welding and assembly lines, simulating possible scenarios, both for design as well as for operation control purposes, is very important for the design team, as well as for management, due to the per-minute-cost of every failed robotic operation. In order to support, both the design as well as the management community of such systems, in this article, we discuss a generic simulation methodology, using the IT-Guru OPNET simulation program, as well as show practical results, that demonstrate the benefits of simulation methods.
