1.0 Introduction to Computer Simulation


We assume the reader does not understand the options and function of computer-based simulation.

Goals for this Section

We will explain what simulations do and how they are helpful tools for system analysis. Then we will describe three major classes of simulations and end with a description of Discrete Event Simulation (DES). The Ecological Simulation Testbed focuses on DES implementations.
