Basic statistics

Course content

Discrete events (random, deterministic), event scheduling and handling. Queues, queue scheduling and queueing networks. Input analysis/calibration (source arrivals, node service/failures, branching). Output analysis, performance metrics (response time, throughput, utilization). Flow management (classification, delay, storage/hold, routing). Requirements analysis and model design. Implementation using simulation software. Model verification and validation. Transient removal, stopping criteria, replications. Simulation as a tool in optimization (experimental design, comparing alternatives). Logistics case studies (transportation, supply chains, hospitals, manufacturing).

Learning outcome

The student will know how to use discrete event simulation for studying the performance of a distribution system.
