System Simulation

A statistical modeling process involved in queuing problems resulting from random events. Simulation is used to test systems before costly capital investment is in implementation.

Simulation Modeling

Simulation Modeling is a tool used for operational research dealing with queuing problems. This tool can help an organization make wise decisions before committing time and capital. Some typical applications for Simulation modeling are:

• How many ports are needed in a telecommunications network?
• How many nurse stations are needed on a hospital floor?
• How many customer service reps are needed in a call center?
• How many forklift drivers are needed in a warehouse, etc?
