Commercial Case Studies

Commercial Case Studies

Track coordinators: Wendy Jiang (SAS), David Sturrock (Simio LLC)

You might have done important work where you used simulation to conduct analysis and provide recommendations for potential solutions to a specific problem; or where simulation is the backbone of a commercial application enabling critical use cases that you would like to share with others. But perhaps you do not have the time and resources required to submit a full paper and make early commitments to participate at the 2023 Winter Simulation Conference.

To support your commercially focused contributions, you are cordially invited to submit to 2023 WSC a 2-page Extended Abstract describing an industrial or commercial case study. Unlike in previous years, case studies will not be kept in a separate track anymore. Rather, for all application-oriented topics such as the example below, presentations of such case studies will be fully integrated into the respective full paper presentation tracks. This will enable WSC to not only feature more prominently exciting commercial show cases illustrating the benefits that have been achieved with novel methodologies and solutions, but also to much more effectively catalyze cross-fertilization between Academia and Industry.

An Extended Abstract should use the WSC Extended Abstract template for paper submission and describe the problem, the simulation methods used, the results, and the impact/benefits achieved. Those case studies selected for presentation at WSC will have a summary appear in the final program of WSC and on the WSC Archive website.

Application Oriented Tracks include:

  • Aviation Modeling and Analysis
  • Data Science for Simulation
  • Simulation as Digital Twin
  • Environmental and Sustainability Applications
  • Healthcare and Life Sciences
  • Logistics, Supply Chains, Transportation
  • Manufacturing and Industry 4.0
  • Modelling and Analysis of Semiconductor Manufacturing (MASM)
  • Military and National Security Applications
  • Project Management and Construction
  • Complex and Resilient Systems
  • Reliability Modeling and Simulation
  • Scientific Applications
  • Simulation and AI

Task schedule:

  • August 4, 2023: Electronically submit 2-page extended abstracts
  • August 25, 2023: Deadline for reviewers
  • September 1, 2023: Notification of acceptance to authors
  • September 15, 2023: Final extended abstracts due
  • September 20, 2023: Eligibility check for the submitted abstracts
