BUSI 5420G - Discrete Event Simulation Modeling


This course will provide an introduction to the application and theoretical background of systems simulation. Topics include systems concepts, modeling systems using discrete events and the modeling of operations and logistics systems, service systems and healthcare systems through simulation. Theoretical topics include random variable generation, model verification and validation, statistical analysis of output, variance reduction techniques and optimization via simulation. This course will blend systems modeling and simulation experimental design and analysis. Simple simulation problems will be introduced using Microsoft Excel and a high-level simulation language will be utilized for more complex problems. Students will complete and present a simulation project. This subject matter will be examined using primarily a case-based, investigation-style teaching method to encourage interaction, participation and a personal sense of the subject matter. Lectures are coupled with hands-on cases and discussion to facilitate the understanding of the concepts of the course and demonstrate their application to real-life situations. Students will be encouraged to present their ideas and bring forward emerging issues in the application and information systems in the workplace.
Credit hours: 3
