Chapter 1-Intro to Simulation Isen 424 Simulation-imitation of the operation of a real world process or system over time. o Involves the generation of an artificial history of a system and the observation of that artificial history to draw inferences concerning the operating characteristics of the real system. Behavior of system over time studied by a simulation MODEL o Investigates variety of “what if” questions Simulation modeling o Both as an analysis tool and design tool Predicting effect of changes to systems Predict performance of new systems under varying circumstances When simulation is the appropriate tool o Study of internal interactions of a system o Effect of alteration son the model’s behavior can be observed o Suggesting improvement in system o Used as a pedagogical device to reinforce analytic solution methodologies o Experiment new designs before implementation to observe consequences o Verify analytic solutions o Determine machines requirements o Designed for training purposes o Plan can be visualized o Modern system so complex, its internal interactions can be treated only through
