Fundamentals of Performance Evaluation of Computer-based Systems

Discrete Event Simulation Using Excel/Vba

This book presents fundamental modeling tools, queueing theory, and discrete event simulation for evaluating computer-based systems. Assuming some familiarity with modeling concepts and Excel, the text is an excellent resource for those who need to learn the basics of discrete simulation and for those who wish to use discrete event simulation to model computer-based systems. The authors focus on practical applications, but also provide an overview of the required background theory.

This book presents fundamental modeling tools, queueing theory, and discrete event simulation for evaluating computer-based systems.

Simulation of Industrial Systems

Discrete Event Simulation Using Excel/VBA

In any production environment, discrete event simulation is a powerful tool for the analysis, planning, and operating of a manufacturing facility. Operations managers can use simulation to improve their production systems by eliminating bottlenecks, reducing cycle time and cost, and increasing capacity utilization. Offering a hands-on tutorial on how to model traditional applications to optimize production operations, Simulation of Industrial Systems: Discrete Event Simulation Using Excel/VBA— · Introduces the Design Environment for Event Driven Simulation (DEEDS), an original simulator, which facilitates the modeling of complex situations using four (self-contained) nodes: source, queue, facility, and delay. · Demonstrates how to use discrete event simulation as a powerful tool for the analysis, planning, design, and operation of diverse production systems · Shows how to model application areas such as facilities layout, material handling, inventory control, scheduling, maintenance, quality control, and supply chain logistics · Integrates the design of experiments and optimization techniques for improving production systems With the comprehensive instruction provided within these pages, in combination with the flexibility of the DEEDS program environment, operations managers will be able to harness the power of discrete event simulation to streamline their production environments. The authors have created a website with a variety of teaching aids that professors will be able to access

Performance Evaluation of Industrial Systems

Discrete Event Simulation in Using Excel/VBA, Second Edition

Basic approaches to discrete simulation have been process simulation languages (e.g., GPSS) and event-scheduling type (e.g., SIMSCRIPT). The trade-offs are that event-scheduling languages offer more modeling flexibility and process-oriented languages are more intuitive to the user. With these considerations in mind, authors David Elizandro and Hamdy Taha embarked on the development of a new discrete simulation environment that is easy to use, yet flexible enough to model complex production systems. They introduced this environment, Design Environment for Event Driven Simulation (DEEDS), in Simulation of Industrial Systems: Discrete Event Simulation in Using Excel/VBA. The DEEDS environment is itself an Excel/VBA add-in. Based on this foundation, the second edition, now titled Performance Evaluation of Industrial Systems: Discrete Event Simulation in Using Excel/VBA incorporates the use of discrete simulation to statistically analyze a system and render the most efficient time sequences, designs, upgrades, and operations. This updated edition includes new visualization graphics for DEEDS software, improvements in the optimization of the simulation algorithms, a new chapter on queuing models, and an Excel 2007 version of the DEEDS software. Organized into three parts, the book presents concepts of discrete simulation, covers DEEDS, and discusses a variety of applications using DEEDS. The flexibility of DEEDS makes it a great tool for students or novices to learn concepts of discrete simulation and this book can form the basis of an introductory undergraduate course on simulation. The expanded depth of coverage in the second edition gives it a richness other introductory texts do not have and provides practitioners a reference for their simulation projects. It may also be used as a research tool by faculty and graduate students who are interested in "optimizing" production systems.
