The most part of scientific discoveries of human being borrow ideas and inspiration from nature. This point gives the rationale of the conceptual model here presented, which funds on the basic assumption that it is possible to put the analogy between manufacturing systems, as perceived by decision maker, and aerobic living organisms. The aerobic living-organism (ALO) conceptual model consists of a set of axioms and criteria that allow one to translate his own view of a real manufacturing system into a schemata of an aerobic living-organism, with given features and characteristics. Starting from this schemata it is then possible to build an ALO simulation model, to better study the manufacturing system's behaviour under different operating scenarios. Criticalities of the ALO conceptual model are also discussed.
