Describtion/Outcomes As a continuation to the IM 521E course, this course starts with an introduction to simulation concepts, and progresses through an overview of the Arena software, basic model development, input analysis, additional modelling constructs, output analysis, and advanced modelling. Furthermore, the course includes chapters on integrating Arena simulation models with other applications, specialized statistical issues, continuous simulation, and conducting a successful simulation study.
arabic Describtion/Outcomes
objectives Upon completion of this course the student will be able to: Construct conceptual models and understand the importance of model conceptualization. Develop their own simulation models using Arena. Understand the different ways of developing complex models through a set of case studies in different manufacturing and services areas. Gain hands-on experience related to simulation studies as they go through the development of simulation models for a real life problem (term project).
