Description:

APPLIED SIMULATION MODELING provides the student with both a conceptual introduction to the concepts of simulation modeling and practical experience with real examples using popular commercial simulation packages ARENA and @Risk. The coverage includes Risk Simulation, Dynamic Systems, and Discrete Event Simulation models. Throughout the text, the authors show readers how they can use simulation in the context of decision making. Practical examples from Operations Management, Manufacturing, Health Care, and Finance are included throughout to give students an appreciation for the wide scope of application and the robust nature of simulation modeling. Special student editions of ARENA and…
