Static system modelling for a manufacturing organisation does not closely reflect the manufacturing process. A dynamic model more closely simulates the processes involved, and can provide a richer model. This also applies to cost modelling, where some operational details are assumed or obtained from other systems. In order to provide a holistic modelling system, an experimental system has been built closely to couple a generative cost modelling system and a discrete event simulation system. This paper describes the system, its advantages and shortcomings, and the results obtained for the planning of an assembly process.
