## Simulation modeling and analysisThis authoritative, comprehensive, and thoroughly up-to-date guide addresses all the important aspects of a simulation study, including modeling, simulation languages, validation, input probability distribution, and analysis of simulation output data. Full scale treatments of manufacturing systems simulation and simulation software and animation are also included along with useful and instructive case studies. |
