Simulation technology 模擬技術
Simulation technology can turn real life operation into computer animation, and allows users to see the real operations on a computer screen. The data generated by the simulation programme can be analyzed for use in important decision making, including resource allocation and operation design. We draw on our specialized knowledge to help industries and manufacturing companies to figure out the best way to optimize resources, and improve their overall operation efficiency.  The simulation technology in particular, is one of the most powerful tools used by us to achieve the goal of system improvement. 
模擬技術可將真實的操作轉化為電腦動畫,使企業決策者能在電腦屏幕上了解實際操作。更重要的是可詳細研究模擬後產生的數據,為決策者提供客觀的分析。香港大學工業及製造系統工程系致力協助企業最有效地運用資源,改善操作效率。而模擬技術是其中一項有效工具,達到改善系統運作的目的。

 How did the mail package arrive at my doorstep? 郵包怎來到我家門口?
Logistics companies like DHL need to handle several hundred thousand mail packages daily. And within a few hours of the arrival of mail packages, they need to be sorted, categorized, and ready to be delivered to the client on time.  How does DHL achieve that with less effort, less time, and smaller budget?  The answer is the simulation technology developed by us.  Since every minute detail of the logistics operation can be simulated on a computer, decision makers can run various situations on computer and select the best one to be implemented. This is how we facilitate Hong Kong companies to maintain their industry competitiveness both regionally and internationally. 
以DHL為例,每天要在數小時內處理數以十萬計空運貨件,並需準確無誤的進行排序和分類等工序,從而準時送到客戶手中。如何才可以較少的資源但又以最快的速度完成任務?香港大學工業及製造系統工程系使用模擬技術為DHL提供了答案。因為每一個操作細節都可以在電腦上進行模擬,決策者可反覆模擬各種不同的情況,選擇最好的執行。香港大學工業及製造系統工程系協助香港的企業掌握先進的決策科技,維持其在地區和國際上的競爭優勢。
