The aim with the course is to give the student a basic knowledge of how to design a conceptual model and use it as a base when building a simulation model to analyse the packaging system.

Modelling of packaging systems creates basic knowledge about the studied system, about discrete event simulation as a method and how modelling and simulation can be used to analyse packaging lines. In addition modelling and simulation as a method is covered. Commercial software are used as tools in the course activities and assignments. Lectures, assignments, guest lectures and plant visits to packaging producers and users in the region are used in the learning process. The final project is carried out by the students in groups of two students.
