Modeling & Simulation: An Introductory Course
ISBN 1-883477-58-1

Call it art or call it science...High school students and teachers are learning the technology of simulation and integrating it into both business and industrial technology courses.   Modeling and simulation is the science of using software to construct a system within an organization, such as the teller system in a bank, the assembly line of a manufacturer, or the product shelving and inventory in a grocery store.  Running simulations of proposed changes to the system, the results can be analyzed before funds are expended to actually make changes.  It is used extensively in the fields of healthcare, service industry, and manufacturing for both new operations and for improving existing operations.
