Systems Modelling and Simulation

Status :  Core Pre-requisite :IMMG 11033 Co-requisite :None

 

On completion of this course, the student should be able to:

  • Appreciate the importance of modelling and simulation in manufacturing and service based applications
  • Evaluate different options available when simulating systems
  • Formulate a discrete-event simulation model of a selected system
  • Use a simulation software package/language to simulate and analyze a system
  • Analyze the results of a simulation and hence recommend appropriate solutions to the problem.

Simulation in management decision-making. Different categories of simulations. Concepts of discrete-event simulation. Construction of models: modelling issues, verification and validation of models, development of simulation models using selected software, analysis of results.
Lectures, in-class discussion of cases, self study; laboratory sessions.
End-of-course exam, in-class assignments, mini-project.
