This article presents a case study, in the gasket segment that approaches the use of Computer Simulation to identify inefficiencies in the use of resources in productive process flows and propose improvements. From the modeling scenes and with the demand data, it was possible to analyze the performance of the simulated processes flows, which allowed the help in resources management. For that, the fundamental concepts and aspects were approached, the main stages, the obtained results and the critical points as well. For this analysis the software Arena was used to elaborate the simulation models for the proposed case study.
