  3. 3. Introduction 3  A simulation of a system is the operation of a model. The model can be reconfigured and experimented with; The operation of the model can be studied, and hence, properties concerning the behaviour of the actual system or its subsystem.  In its broadest sense, simulation is a tool to evaluate the performance of a system, existing or proposed, under different configurations of interest and over long periods of real time.
  4. 4. 4  Simulation is used before an existing system is altered or a new system built, to reduce the chances of failure to meet specifications, to eliminate unforeseen bottlenecks, to prevent under or over- utilization of resources, and to optimize system performance.
  5. 5. 5  What is the best design for a new telecommunications network?  What are the associated resource requirements?  How will a telecommunication network perform when the traffic load increases by 50%?  Which network protocol optimizes network performance?  What will be the impact of a link failure? simulation can be used to answer questions like
  6. 6. 6 The subject of this tutorial is discrete event simulation in which the central assumption is that the system changes instantaneously in response to certain discrete events. On the other hand, continuous simulators, like flight simulators and weather simulators, attempt to quantify the changes in a system continuously over time in response to controls.
  7. 7. 7  Discrete event simulation is less detailed (coarser in its smallest time unit) than continuous simulation but it is much simpler to implement, and hence, is used in a wide variety of situations.
  8. 8. 8  In a simulation study, human decision making is required at all stages, namely, model development, experiment design, output analysis, conclusion formulation, and making decisions to alter the system under study.  The only stage where human intervention is not required is the running of the simulations, which most simulation software packages perform efficiently.
  9. 9. 9  The important point is that powerful simulation software is merely a hygiene factor - its absence can hurt a simulation study but its presence will not ensure success. Experienced problem formulators and simulation modelers and analysts are indispensable for a successful simulation study.
  11. 11. 11 2.0 Definition  A simulation is the imitation(Duplication) of the operation of real-world process or system over time. - Generation of artificial history and observation of that observation history  A model construct a conceptual framework that describes a system  The behaviour of a system that evolves over time is studied by developing a simulation model.
  12. 12. 12  The model takes a set of expressed assumptions: - Mathematical, logical - Symbolic relationship between the entities
  13. 13. 13 3.0 Goal of modeling and simulation  A model can be used to investigate a wide verity of “what if” questions about real-world system. - Potential changes to the system can be simulated and predicate their impact on the system. - Find adequate parameters before implementation  So simulation can be used as - Analysis tool for predicating the effect of changes - Design tool to predicate the performance of new system  It is better to do simulation before Implementation.
  14. 14. 14 4.0 When Simulation Is the Appropriate Tool  Simulation enable the study of internal interaction of a subsystem with complex system  Informational, organizational and environmental changes can be simulated and find their effects  A simulation model help us to gain knowledge about improvement of system  Finding important input parameters with changing simulation inputs
  15. 15. 15  Simulation can be used with new design and policies before implementation  Simulating different capabilities for a machine can help determine the requirement  Simulation models designed for training make learning possible without the cost disruption  A plan can be visualized with animated simulation  The modern system (factory, wafer fabrication plant, service organization) is too complex that its internal interaction can be treated only by simulation
  16. 16. 16 6.0 Advantages of simulation  New policies, operating procedures, information flows and son on can be explored without disrupting ongoing operation of the real system.  New hardware designs, physical layouts, transportation systems and … can be tested without committing resources for their acquisition.  Time can be compressed or expanded to allow for a speed- up or slow-down of the phenomenon( clock is self-control).  Insight can be obtained about interaction of variables and important variables to the performance.  Bottleneck analysis can be performed to discover where work in process, the system is delayed.  A simulation study can help in understanding how the system operates.  “What if” questions can be answered.
  17. 17. 17 7.0 Disadvantages of simulation  Model building requires special training. - Vendors of simulation software have been actively developing packages that contain models that only need input (templates).  Simulation results can be difficult to interpret.  Simulation modeling and analysis can be time consuming and expensive. - Many simulation software have output-analysis.

  19. 19. 19 9.0 Steps in Simulation Study  For developing a simulation model, designing a simulation experiment, and performing simulation analysis are:  Step 1. Identify the problem.  Step 2. Formulate the problem.  Step 3. Collect and process real system data.  Step 4. Formulate and develop a model.  Step 5. Validate the model.  Step 6. Document model for future use.  Step 7. Select appropriate experimental design.  Step 8. Establish experimental conditions for runs.  Step 9. Perform simulation runs.  Step 10. Interpret and present results.  Step 11. Recommend further course of action.
