This course introduces discrete event simulation (through Arena) and how it is applied to dynamic systems. Discrete event simulation concepts such as entities, resources, and event chains are introduced. Systems will be simulated considering time (such as work schedules, machine/human performance), space (such as process layout) and resource (such as manpower, equipment) characteristics of process. In doing that, the course covers a variety of Arena features and building blocks. The course will also introduce time studies, and distribution fitting.
