ch19a Student: ___________________________________________________________________________ 1. Simulation is used in manufacturing management to determine production schedules, inventory levels, and to do capacity planning. True False 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 False 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 False 4. As stated in the textbook, there are five different categories of probability distributions that can be used for a simulation study. True False 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. True False 6. Time incrementing is a concept of a simulated clock. True False 7. In a simulation model time can be advanced by fixed or variable time increments. True False 8. In a simulation model time cannot be advanced by variable time increments. True False 9. The run length of a simulation depends on the purpose of the simulation. True False 10. A simulation model does not have to be validated to provide accurate information. True False 11. Run length and run time are the same thing. True False

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 False 13. Regardless of the computer language chosen for a simulation model, too much data from a simulation can be dysfunctional to problem solving. True False 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 False 15. Spreadsheet simulations have become obsolete due in part to specialized computer simulation languages like SLAM or SIMAN. True False 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. True False 17. Operations and supply chain management simulations are most usually the continuous type. True False 18. Simulation models are classified as discrete if they are based on mathematical equations. True False 19. General-Purpose Simulation Software (GPSS) is really a computer language that allows programmers to build their own simulation models. True False
