Discrete-Event System Simulation

Jerry Banks, John S. Carson, Barry L. Nelson, David Malcolm Nicol

Research output: Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook


While most books on simulation focus on particular software tools, Discrete Event System Simulation examines the principles of modeling and analysis that translate to all such tools. This language-independent text explains the basic aspects of the technology, including the proper collection and analysis of data, the use of analytic techniques, verification and validation of models, and designing simulation experiments. It offers an up-to-date treatment of simulation of manufacturing and material handling systems, computer systems, and computer networks.
