Modeling and Simulation of Discrete Event Systems

Modeling and Simulation of Discrete Event Systems
Modeling and Simulation of Discrete Event Systems is published by in September 2013. This book has 432 pages in English, ISBN-13 978-1118386996.

Computer modeling and simulation (M&S) allows engineers to study and analyze complex systems. Discrete-event system (DES)-M&S is used in modern management, industrial engineering, computer science, and the military. As computer speeds and memory capacity increase, so DES-M&S tools become more powerful and more widely used in solving real-life problems.

Based on over 20 years of evolution within a classroom environment, as well as on decades-long experience in developing simulation-based solutions for high-tech industries, Modeling and Simulation of Discrete-Event Systems is the only book on DES-M&S in which all the major DES modeling formalisms – activity-based, process-oriented, state-based, and event-based – are covered in a unified manner:

  • A well-defined procedure for building a formal model in the form of event graph, ACD, or state graph
  • Diverse types of modeling templates and examples that can be used as building blocks for a complex, real-life model
  • A systematic, easy-to-follow procedure combined with sample C# codes for developing simulators in various modeling formalisms
  • Simple tutorials as well as sample model files for using popular off-the-shelf simulators such as SIGMA®, ACE®, and Arena®
  • Up-to-date research results as well as research issues and directions in DES-M&S

Modeling and Simulation of Discrete-Event Systems is an ideal textbook for undergraduate and graduate students of simulation/industrial engineering and computer science, as well as for simulation practitioners and researchers.
