The main objective is to model information flows within an organization (production system, logistics platform, administration, communication network, ...). Whether designing or analyzing an organization, the evaluation phase is an unavoidable step. Indeed, before making often heavy investments, it is imperative to ensure that the solutions envisaged meet the objectives. This course provides training on both the principles and tools of mathematical analysis and simulation tools for the specification, modeling and evaluation of information flows. This course will focus on practical applications of Petri nets modeling and event simulation software such as Witness.
