The paper deals with the problem of simulation optimization and presents its usage for input control in a production system. The paper gives an overview of typical concepts of input control. Authors propose different approaches. The basic principles of simulation optimization are explained. A general procedure with each step is defined and this procedure is explained by an example. The solution is focused on the minimization of the production costs, which is included in the objective function. Realization of the simulation optimization is based on the combination of three different algorithms: Adaptive Thermostatistical Simulated Annealing, Random Solution and All Combination algorithm. The proposed procedure definitely leads to exact determination of input interval for given production system and short time period.
