During the thesis development, simulation theories and techniques will be applied to a part of the production process of an Italian manufacturing company. A simulation model of the steaming and washing phases will be developed to outline the automated and manual procedures that are performed in the AS-IS state. Several what-if scenarios will be then envisioned and simulated to analyze how the production activities could be re-engineered in the light of the new technological advancements, such as the introduction of full traceability.
