Modeling & Simulation: An Introductory Course
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.
