About this Item

While most books on simulation focus on particular software tools, Discrete Event System Simulation examines the principles of modeling and analysis that translate to all such tools. This language-independent text explains the basic aspects of the technology, including the proper collection and analysis of data, the use of analytic techniques, verification and validation of models, and designing simulation experiments. It offers an up-to-date treatment of simulation of manufacturing and material handling systems, computer systems, and computer networks. Contents: I Introduction to Discrete-Event System Simulation Chapter 1 Introduction to Simulation Chapter 2 Simulation Examples Chapter 3 General Principles Chapter 4 Simulation Software II Mathematical and Statistical Models Chapter 5 Statistical Models in Simulation Chapter 6 Queueing Models III Random Numbers Chapter 7 Random-Number Generation Chapter 8 Random-Variate Generation IV Analysis of Simulation Data Chapter 9 Input Modeling Chapter 10 Verification and Validation of Simulation Models Chapter 11 Output Analysis for a Single Model Chapter 12 Comparison and Evaluation of Alternative System Designs V Applications Chapter 13 Simulation of Manufacturing and Material-Handling Systems Chapter 14 Simulation of Computer Networks Printed Pages: 530.

About this title


Discrete event system simulation comprehensively covers the basic principles of modelling and analysis, while following a language-independent text. This book will help readers learn how to use analytic techniques, design simulation experiments, collect data and do verifications.the latest version of discrete event system simulation is divided into five parts, the first of which introduces readers to simulation, general principles, softwares and examples. Statistical models and queueing models are covered in the next section. The authors have dedicated the third part of this reference guide to random-number and random-variate generation.analysis of simulation data is the fourth portion and a newer and more realistic presentation of input modelling has been done. In the chapter on output analysis, the authors have made use of subset selection methods of numerous alternatives. The final section of discrete event system simulation focuses solely on applications. It explains simulation of computer systems and manufacturing and material-handling this new edition, the authors have incorporated application topics and a new supplementary excel tool. Updated examples to enhance understanding of theoretical concepts have also been added. Furthermore, every chapter contains a summary, exercises and references. Tables and figures are placed throughout discrete event system simulation.readers can access the companion website for additional exercises, simulation source code for download, lecture slides and more. The fifth edition of discrete event system simulation, published by pearson education in 2009, is available in paperback.
