Description

Simulation or modelling in general is essential part of problem solving and provides decision makers with a means to do 'what if' analysis before committing resources to the execution of a solution. Physical, visual and mathematical models are the broad range of models used to create representation of the system under study for the purpose of analyzing feasibility, parameter ranges and outcomes.

Objective of this course is to provide a basic treament of all the important aspects of discrete-event simulation, familiarize the student with a variety of modelling and simulation techniques, give the student practical experience in composing models and running simulations under a variety of circumstances and discuss results from modelling and simulation using some open source simulation libraries/packages.

Prerequiste of this course is knowledge in Probability and Statistics (undergraduate level). This course is offered to both UG/PG students.
