The authors have considered possibilities of organizing the training of students majoring in engineering specialty “131. Applied Mechanics” in the course “CAD of packaging production” using the specialized software of the AnyLogic Company.

The paper presents software products for automated calculation and modeling of the technological process of packaging. As a result of studying the software product, the students will be able to master the techniques of automated calculation and design of packaging components and implement projects using modern CAD and CAM systems.

The purpose of modeling the technological processes of packaging is to increase their productivity by determining and justifying the optimal parameters. The study of technological processes based on simulation modeling allows the students to identify interconnections, to highlight technical and economic indicators, to evaluate the impact on profitability, to determine the directions of development and ways to improve the technical and technological facilities.

The methodology for developing a flexible automated line simulation model, for example, for the production of macaroni products, is described in this work. Authors highlighted the stages of modelling a flexible automated packaging system.

The criteria that influence the technological process of bulk products packing are determined. The parameters for constructing the simulation model are selected. A formal description of the packing line has been made for a more detailed understanding of the process and the adequate construction of the model. With the help of the software of The AnyLogic Company, students create an acting part of the model, simulate processing at workshops and the work of a warehouse.

As a result, in the developed simulation model, the authors researched the load of the production elements, determined problematic structural elements and calculated the coefficient of the technological line readiness. The virtual model of the technological line allowed testing the future technological line for adequacy, process ability and reliability.

As a result of studying the discipline "CAD of packaging production" and AnyLogic software, students develop holistic understanding of the automated process and acquire the skills of modeling, analysis and optimization of the technological line.
