The paper presents a production process optimization by the simulation approach. The research was realized by a case study for an enterprise producing welding pliers for the automotive industry. The solution of the study was realized in the environment of the program Tecnomatix Plant Simulation, which can simulate the production process after choosing the right conditions and connections among the elements. The research aimed to create a simulation model of the evaluated process with real data and to design optimization solution of the production process for the most advantageous use of machines and devices, which assumes decreasing of production costs and increase devices and machines utilization.
