IE 302 – Simulation; Weekly hours: 2+2, ECTS: 6
Simulation is the practice of designing a model of an actual or theoretical system, executing that model to observe its behavior and then analyzing the results. This course focuses on computer-based simulation, where the model is implemented as part of a computer program, which can then be executed to compute and record the data which describes the simulated system’s behavior. Computer simulations may be constructed as stand-alone programs or they may be developed using a variety of simulation environments and toolkits. In case, the theory and process for developing and analyzing the system model is the same. We will focus on the common theory and processes, and survey available implementation environments. When using simulations to study real-world systems, ensuring that the simulation is an accurate representation of the systems is essential. We will look at a number of techniques for comparing the behavior of a simulation with the behavior of the real system, in order to quantify the simulation’s accuracy.
