Overall Operation Effectiveness Model (OOEM)
Abstract: The overall operation efficiency model is a discrete event simulation model used to examine the impact of material quality on the performance of biomass processing systems. Discrete event simulation is a modeling method that “utilizes a mathematical/logical model of a physical system that portrays state changes at precise points in simulated time. Both the nature of the state changes and the time at which the change occurs mandate precise description”. Discrete event simulation has been commonly used as a method to analyze and solve manufacturing problems and make decisions by simulating and performing “what if” analyses to develop a deeper
understanding of an industrial process. Preprocessing of biomass lends itself to a discrete event simulation approach since each operation has a defined start and end, the flow of material is a defined path and the flow is based on the interactions of the equipment and feedstock characteristics.
