ARGESIM provides several different benchmarks for modelling and simulation. Unfortunately, the only benchmark that can be used as a foundation for analyzing manufacturing control systems, ARGESIM C2 ‘Flexible Assembly System’, does not cover today’s requirements for comparing different simulation techniques and/or control algorithms regarding complexity and dynamics. Therefore, the authors propose a new benchmark description: ARGESIM Benchmark C20 ‘Complex Production System’. The benchmark is based on two dimensions, defining a total of twelve different scenarios that differ in their complexity and dynamic behavior.
