Discrete-event simulation optimization is a problem of significant interest to practitioners interested in extracting useful information about an actual (or yet to be designed) system that can be modeled using discrete-event simulation. This paper presents a survey of the literature on discrete-event simulation optimization published in recent years (1988 to the present), with a particular focus on discrete input parameter optimization. The discrete input parameter case differentiates techniques appropriate for small and for large numbers of feasible input parameter values. Examples of applications that illustrate these methods are also discussed.
