Simulation and Sustainability

Authors:

Keywords: Sustainability, Simulation, Event-Discrete-Simulation, Sustainability Reporting

Abstract:
Nowadays global initiatives face numerous problems: non-transparent financial developments on the global markets, only a few years after the biggest economic crisis of our times, unsolved ecological problems that, given the ascent of emerging economies, are seemingly getting worse and the almost surreal speed at, which new technologies are changing our societies. The impacts these changes are having on companies worldwide are as numerous as their effects on the population. Sustainability and Sustainable Development have become key words in the hope of addressing and managing the changes that lay ahead of human societal development. This paper attempts to highlight shortcomings in the concept of sustainability and ways to make the concept more workable by presenting the development of an Environmental Management Information System (EMIS) as a combination of discrete event simulation and ecological material flow analysis for production processes.
