Modeling of the operation of service systems using the discrete event simulation paradigm; theoretical topics including random variable sampling, input distribution fitting, model verification and validation, and aleatory and epistemic uncertainty in the simulation output analysis context.
Upon completion of this course, students should be able to (1) Understand how computer simulation can be used to model complex systems and solve related decision problems (2), understand the assumptions made in building a discrete event simulation, (3) understand and apply statistical methods used in simulation analysis, (4) perform sensitivity analyses to test the effects of critical model parameters, (5) be able to run a simulation project from start to finish.
