Course content

Simulation is a widely used computer technique for system’s analysis used in many fields of science and technology. Discrete event simulation is one of the simulation approaches often applied in petroleum logistics. The purpose of the seminar is to introduce the student to Arena discrete-event simulation software and selected simulation applications within petroleum logistics. The student will learn how to build a simulation model and implement it in Arena simulator, design and conduct computational experiments, and to analyze the results to answer the what if questions on the system that raised the need of the simulation study. The evaluation in this seminar will be based on a modelling assignment to be performed in a group of 2-3 persons and an oral presentation of a distributed paper. Grading is A-E.
