Chapter 19A - Simulation Chapter 19A Simulation True / False Questions 1. Simulation is used in manufacturing management to determine production schedules, inventory Levels and to do capacity planning. TRUE Level: Easy 2. The first step in the major phase "constructing the simulation model" is to determine which properties of the system should be fixed (called parameters) and which should be allowed to assume different values (called variables) throughout the simulation run. TRUE Level: Easy 3. Decision rules in a simulation are a set of conditions under which the behavior of the simulation model is observed. These rules are either directly or indirectly the focus of most simulation studies. TRUE Level: Easy 4. As stated in the textbook, there are five different categories of probability distributions that can be used for a simulation study. FALSE Level: Easy 19A-1

Chapter 19A - Simulation 5. An empirical probability distribution used in a simulation study is one derived from a standard mathematical distribution like the normal or Poisson probability distributions. FALSE Level: Easy 6. Time incrementing is a concept of a simulated clock. TRUE Level: Easy 7. In a simulation model time can be advanced by fixed or variable time increments. TRUE Level: Easy 8. In a simulation model time cannot be advanced by variable time increments. FALSE Level: Easy 9. The run length of a simulation depends on the purpose of the simulation. TRUE Level: Easy 10. A simulation model does not have to be validated to provide accurate information. FALSE Level: Easy 19A-2
Chapter 19A - Simulation 11. Run length and run time are the same thing. TRUE Level: Easy 12. When we have performed a simulation run of a model another simulation experiment might be called for that requires a change in parameters or variables. TRUE Level: Easy 13. Regardless of the computer language chosen for a simulation model, too much data from a simulation can be dysfunctional to problem solving. TRUE Level: Easy 14. In order to develop the random number intervals for a simulation study we need to know the probability distributions in the situation to be simulated. TRUE Level: Easy 15. Spreadsheet simulations have become obsolete due in part to specialized computer simulation languages like SLAM or SIMAN. FALSE Level: Easy 19A-3

Chapter 19A - Simulation 16. Simulation models are classified as continuous if the simulation occurs at specific event points, like a piece of machinery in a factory breaking down. FALSE Level: Easy 17. Operations and supply management simulations are most usually the continuous type. FALSE Level: Medium 18. Simulation models are classified as discrete if they are based on mathematical equations. FALSE
