As a beginner for the unfamiliar software such as Arena Simulation, it is very tough when we need to do a simple model by referring to the textbooks or journal articles that contains a lot of difficult words to understand. Therefore, a guideline was created to solve this problem that contains simple wordings, more infographic and the simple step by step procedures that are easy to follow, understand and to help the users. The purpose of the study was to build a training guideline for modeling an assembly line by using Arena Simulation, to build a model representing the assembly process using the training guide, and analyze the simulation result for the assembly line model. The study was conducted using Arena Simulation software. The data was collected based on the actual model to be inserted into the system setting for validation purposes. The model was created with 32 hours replications length to achieve accuracy in the result. The difference between the actual and simulation model must be below 5% percent to said the model is valid. To verify the guideline is applicable we build another example of the model and compared the simulation result with the actual simulation data from the textbook. To validate the model, we calculated the percentage difference between the actual and simulation model results. This simulation finding indicated that the guideline is suitable to be used as a learning tool and reference for users to model an assembly line. To conclude, this project has successfully provide a basic guideline for modelling an assembly line using Arena software and there is still a lot of rooms for future improvement.
