A system concept that can guide the management method of a production system is important in the deployment of the Internet of Things (IoT) concept in manufacturing. This paper describes the concept of SIM (Simulation Integrated Manufacturing), the objective of which is to dynamically optimize production planning. The concept is based on the integration of engineering and supply chains in the preparatory stage of production, centering on the production model. Also described is the effect demonstrated in a verification experiment, in which this concept was applied to an actual manufacturing operation.
