Chapter 19: Chapter 19: Simulation Simulation Suppose…. We want to test several possible design changes before we build our next airplane. We have to figure out how many and what type of check-out lanes to have at a new Wal-Mart store. We can use simulation to imitate chance behavior in order to find probabilities of events. A simulation of a process behaves in the same ways as the real process itself, so that similar results are produced.

Simulation Simulation Simulation: using random digits from a table or from computer software to imitate chance behavior Flight simulators use a software “model” of how an airplane reacts. Pilots can test these planes before taking them into the air in order to know what to expect. Similarly, simulations of probabilities use a probability model. We set up the model and let the computer handle the repetitions. Then we can know what to expect from certain chance behavior.
