Abstract
In this paper we describe the use of a commercial discrete event simulation package (Siemens 2008) combined with a custom program, written in the programming language Python (Martelli 2006). Combining these two makes it possible to automatically generate a model for assembly line logistics simulation. The different stations of the assembly line, their connections and the storage near the assembly line were generated within seconds. A huge amount of time was saved compared with manual generation.
