5/1/2008 Notes CH18 Random arrival random service one server Random arrival constant service one server Random arrival random service multiple server CH18s Simulation Def – technique that enables a decision maker to evaluate the behavior of a model under various conditions Simulation Process 1. problem 2. simulation model 3. test the model 4. experiment 5. run and evaluate 6. repeat until results are satisfactory Limit - Does not give the best solution - Monte Carlo simulation only apply to random systems Advantages - Solve problems that is impossible to solve mathematically - fast - less cost - training tools Monte Carlo Simulation – probabilistic simulation technique used when a process has a random component - Discreet distribution
