Simulation optimization in the era of Industrial 4.0 and the Industrial Internet
Journal of Simulation 10, 310-320

The paper exploits simulation in a “frontier” topic, Industry 4.0, offering [once again] a distinctively powerful tool for decision makers in organizations across the globe.  The authors' approach leverages the increased data available with Industry 4.0, optimization techniques and computing power with a blend of simulation models of different granularity [“fidelity”, in the author's terminology] to enable smart decisions in an industrial context. The paper explains the context showing simulation becoming increasingly relevant to Industry 4.0 and is well written and presented.
