Module description

The aim of the module is to enable you to build and validate discrete event simulation models from real system descriptions or observations, and conduct statistically-sound experimentation and predictions of system performance under new conditions.

Discrete event simulation;
Simulation of simple systems on paper;
Visual interactive model building;
Stochasticity, warm-up, run length and replication;
Verification validation and experimentation.
