OK, one more thing: you need to be a student. In this case you might be interested in the Tecnomatix Plant Simulation Student Contest and get the chance to win an Apple iPod® Touch.
What to do for it? It’s easy; submit your simulation model here. A jury of Siemens PLM Software professionals will evaluate the models according to some criteria. Look for more details here.
The first winner of an iPod® Touch is Dr. Christian Heib. He developed a simulation model which creates the transparency between costs and the processes causing them.
To test the results for usefulness in practice, actual processes from the company Robert Bosch GmbH will be examined.
BTW: the contest runs until December 2010.
