Saturday 4:00-5:00, Monday 11:30-12:30, Wednesday 11:30-12:30

Semester: Spring 2004

Course Description:
This course is designed to introduce basic concepts of system modeling and computer simulation. The process and methodology of using simulation for problem solving and decision making are emphasized. Simulation language Arena will be used as a tool for model building. Students will be required to apply the modeling techniques to a real world (or fictitious) problem through a term project.
