    The goal of the article is a study of specific features of application of discrete-event modelling in the process of making managerial decisions connected with re-trimming of a conveyor line of a major industrial enterprise. Analysing and systemising scientific works of domestic and foreign scientists, the author focuses on insufficiency of development of issues connected with application of simulation modelling to re-trimming of conveyor lines. The article considers aspects of discrete-event modelling in the process of making managerial decisions connected with identification of bottle-necks of the system using methodology of the limitations theory and analysis of possibilities of their elimination, i.e. increase of effectiveness of system functioning. The author provides a discrete-event model of the process of compressor assembly. The provided model allows detection of bottle-necks in the system and also analysis of various possibilities of their elimination.
