We need a proper knowledge of both the techniques of simulation modeling and the simulated systems themselves.
The scenario described above is but one situation where computer simulation can be effectively used.
Modeling and simulation of system design trade off is good preparation for design and engineering decisions in real world jobs.
System Simulation is the mimicking of the operation of a real system, such as the day-to-day operation of a bank, or the value of a stock portfolio over a time period, or the running of an assembly line in a factory, or the staff assignment of a hospital or a security company, in a computer.
Instead of building extensive mathematical models by experts, the readily available simulation software has made it possible to model and analyze the operation of a real system by non-experts, who are managers but not programmers.
The SIMSCRIPT provides a process-based approach of writing a simulation program.
With this approach, the components of the program consist of entities, which combine several related events into one process.
These are but a few of the questions that you must answer in coming up with a design.
With the integration of artificial intelligence, agents and other modeling techniques, simulation has become an effective and appropriate decision support for the managers.
The points in time that an event is activated are randomized, so no input from outside the system is required.
Events exist autonomously and they are discrete so between the execution of two events nothing happens.
In order to help ensure the success of your product in this is a highly competitive field, it is important that you design the switch to yield the highest possible performance while maintaining a reasonable manufacturing cost. Should the memory be associated with incoming communication links to buffer messages as they arrive, or should it be associated with outgoing links to hold messages competing to use the same link?
Moreover, what is the best organization of hardware components within the switch?
This skill lies at the heart of successful strategic decision process.
