8/25/2010 1 Introduction to Simulation Learning Objectives Understand what simulation is and how it aids in the analysis of a problem. Learn why simulation is a significant problem solving tool. Understand the difference between static and dynamic simulation. Identify the important role probability distributions, random numbers, and the computer play in implementing simulation models. Realize the relative advantages and disadvantages of simulation models. Given a probability distribution simulate a sequence of random variables from that probability distribution What is a Simulation? A simulation develops a numerical model whose behavior resembles that of a real system over some specified time interval Continuous simulation systems system changes its state continuously over time. Deterministic – often require differential equations Stochastic/random–uses random numbers Hybrid Discrete simulation systems system changes its state at discrete points in time Simulation Analysis Understand what simulation is and how it aids in the analysis of a problem.
