This book introduces to the world of simulation and modeling. Simulation is the imitation of the operation of a real-world process or system over time. Simulation and modeling help in studying the behavior of a system over a period of time. Simulation also helps in testing a system for its efficiency, accuracy, and effectiveness. There are various techniques for simulation, which have been expounded in this book. The book also discusses about simulation on computer system and simulation of manufacturing and material handling system. It is an indispensable book to thoroughly understand the concepts of simulation and modeling. Every aspect of the book is worth its price.
