## Discrete-event System SimulationThis text provides a basic treatment of discrete-event simulation, one of the most widely used operations research tools presently available. Proper collection and analysis of data, use of analytic techniques, verification and validation of models, and an appropriate design of simulation experiments are treated extensively. Readily understandable to those having a basic familiarity with differential and integral calculus, probability theory and elementary statistics. The Second Edition reorganises, updates and expands coverage to reflect the most recent developments. |
