9781447127826: Modelling and Simulation: Exploring Dynamic System Behaviour (Simulation Foundations, Methods and Applications)

This textbook presents a practical introduction to the fundamental aspects of modelling and simulation. It provides the necessary foundations both for those wishing to learn about this methodology and also for those who have a need to apply it in their work. Illustrative examples are drawn from projects formulated within the domains of both DEDS and CTDS. Features: presents a project-oriented perspective; describes an activity-based conceptual modelling framework (ABCmod) for DEDS; includes a new chapter that presents a novel world view, the Activity-Object world view, which eases the translation of a conceptual model specification in the ABCmod framework into a simulation program; contains numerous illustrative examples, useful algorithms, exercises and projects; includes a primer on probability, a concise guide to the GPSS programming environment and an overview of relevant MATLAB features in the appendices; provides supplementary software and teaching support material at an associated website.

From the Back Cover:

Modelling and simulation provides invaluable support for the design and evaluation of dynamic systems, offering multi-faceted tools that are unconstrained by discipline boundaries.

This fully updated and expanded new edition of Modelling and Simulation presents a practical introduction to the fundamental aspects of modelling and simulation. It provides the necessary foundations both for those wishing to learn about this methodology and also for those who have a need to apply it in their work. Illustrative examples are drawn from projects formulated within the domains of both discrete-event dynamic systems and continuous-time dynamic systems.

Topics and features:

  • Presents a project-oriented (i.e., goal-based) perspective on modelling and simulation
  • Describes an updated novel activity based conceptual modelling framework (the ABCmod framework) for discrete-event dynamic systems
  • Includes a new chapter that presents a novel world view, the Activity-Object world view, which eases the translation of a conceptual model specification in the ABCmod framework into a simulation program
  • Contains numerous illustrative examples and useful algorithms, in addition to exercises and projects at the end of most chapters
  • Includes a primer on probability, a concise guide to the GPSS programming environment and an overview of relevant MATLAB features in the appendices
  • Provides supplementary software and teaching support material at an associated website, including lecture slides and a methodology for organizing student projects

Students at the senior undergraduate or junior graduate level will find this hands-on textbook/reference to be an essential guide to the fundamentals of modelling and simulation. It is also ideally suited for self-study by professionals seeking insight into the vast potential of this rapidly evolving problem-solving paradigm.
