Simulation models allow multiple options to analyse and improve production and logistic processes. The mesoscopic modelling approach is a relatively new concept which combines the advantages of the widespread continuous and discrete event simulation while minimizing the disadvantages. The paper verifies the feasibility of the mesoscopic concept in context of topics concerning the automotive industry. Therefore the approach is used to model a manufacturing process of components with the focus on resource efficiency. A discrete event model of the production line is used to validate and verify the mesoscopic model. Founded on a validated and verified mesoscopic model different scenarios are presented in order to optimize the aspect of resource efficiency. Based on the findings of the simulation study recommendations for action to improve the mesoscopic approach are provided. In addition, potential problems from the automotive sector are presented which can be examined in the future using the mesoscopic approach.
