Simulation in Perspective
Modeling concepts for abstracting the essential features of a system into a coherent set of precedence and mathematical relationships among its elements
Specially designed software for converting these relationships into computer-executable code capable of generating the requisite sample-path data
Procedures for converting these data into estimates of system performance
Methods for assessing how well these estimates approximate true, but unknown, system behavior.
