Improve quality and productivity with simulation
"This first-of-its-kind instructional book & training course, written for both technical & non-technical readers, is aimed at helping U.S. business & industry regain its WORLD CLASS status through the use of computer simulation modeling. Today's increased competition & reduced product life cycles make trial & error experimentation with bricks & mortar, labor, equipment & dollars too risky! Computer modeling is the way to achieve improved quality & increased productivity in any process & variable-intensive environment. Over 325 pages of text, graphics, tables, charts & exercises supported by optional PC-based software provide a basic overview of the fundamental principles, procedures, software, mathematics, & benefits associated with simulation modeling. This book is designed in an easy-to-read presentation format which is conducive to training people with a variety of backgrounds in a short period of time. This is the first simulation book to include a cost perspective & financial justification information. Sources of U.S. simulation software manufacturers are also included.
