Abstract: Time is a crucial part of everyone life. People from all walks of life and organizations are rushing to optimize the time they have everyday. As there are many things to be accomplished daily such as work, grocery shopping, transporting of goods and even just getting from point A to B, it is important that the optimization of time remains. In many of today organizations, everyone is trying to achieve more from the same amount of time or to find the minimum amount of time to complete the task.This project uses a simulation package, amulti-commoditytransport network simulatordeveloped bythe authorto implement the Discrete event system, Time optimal supervisoryand to displaythe simulation within anapplication on the windowsplatform. This application receives inputs from the user,analyses the inputs, displaysand simulatethe inputs with the creation of a database and returns the total time taken to transport the commodities from the source to sink node.Developing this simulator applicationwill enables theuserto graphically displaytheirtransport networkand providesthe user a reliable and accurate calculation of the makespan during execution.With the simulator, the user will be able simulate potential choke point in their network.
