2 What Is Simulation? Simulation: A model of a complex system and the experimental manipulation of the model to observe the results. Systems that are best suited to being simulated are dynamic , interactive , and complicated. Model: An abstraction of a real system. It is a representation of the objects within the system and the rules that govern the interactions of the objects.
