The dynamics of manufacturing systems has been a subject of study for several decades. Over the last years, manufacturing systems have become more and more complex. A good understanding of the dynamics of manufacturing systems has therefore become even more important. The goal of this report is to introduce a large variety of models that have been used for modeling manufacturing systems. By means of examples it is illustrated how certain modeling techniques can be used to derive models that can be used for analysis and/or control. Also, references are provided that can be used as a starting point for getting more details. Furthermore, recent developments in the modeling, analysis and control of manufacturing systems are presented.
