In modern industrial practice, innovative solutions for the improvement of processes or whole production or logistical systems are continually proposed. There are many options offered, but the problem arises in verifying the correctness of decisions and their impact on the functioning of logistic processes and the entire production system after the implementation of the changes. Forecasting or experimentation can be carried out, but there are also more appropriate verification methods because changes can have a significant economic impact on the enterprise. This paper deals with the simulation and emulation of logistics processes, because the simulation is an effective tool for detecting potential in production and logistics, as well as forthe elimination of shortcomings in the design phase of a particular solution in an enterprise. Another proposed intelligent solution is emulation, as part of the decision-making and management support systems. The resulting design of the simulation-emulation logistic system allows a significant shortening period of commissioning. The emulation of production systems is also intended for the rapid verification of the impact of guiding principles in advanced production systems for discrete production. These systems are called adaptive logistical systems that use the adaptability of new types of technologies based on reconfigurable production systems.
