If you develop and use discrete-event simulation models in your work, this course will enable you to top up on the skills required for successful simulation m odelling and analysis. You’ll learn how to build valid and credible simulation models and perform experiments with models to compare the results of different scenarios appropriately and efficiently. The focus is not on a specific software package, but on the broader skills required for successful simulation studies.

  • Learn how to determine what to model and what not to model
  • Find out how to collect and analyse the data needed for a model
  • Gain an understanding of the approaches for verifying and validating a model
  • Learn how to carry out experiments to obtain accurate estimates of performance
  • Understand the methods of running and comparing multiple scenarios
