Simulation Modelling(E)

level of course unit

first cycle

Learning outcomes of course unit

When analytical techniques cannot be applied because of problem complexity and obtaining solutions from experiments is not feasible (to expensive, dangerous, etc.), simulation models are a powerful, universal tool for decision support, e.g. in the context of business processes, production systems, etc. Fundamental methods and techniques of modeling and simulation will be understood and can be applied using selected software tools.

prerequisites and co-requisites

Basic Math and Statistics knowledge

course contents

Each course unites is divided in a know-how and a practical part. In the more theoretically oriented know-how part, the fundamental methods and techniques of modeling and simulation (model building processes, modeling paradigms, simulation software, input data modeling, verification and validation of simulation models, output data analysis, and comparison of variants) are taught. In the practical parts the focus is on practicing the use of a commercial simulation software tool (presumably “SImul8”). Additional labs in the context of input modeling, validation, a model building tutorial, and a small project round up the practical part.
