Discrete Event Simulation Modeling
Simulation refers to a collection of methods to mimic the behavior of real systems. The focus of this course will be simulation modeling of discrete event systems using simulation software ARENA. Introduction to the theory and application of systems simulation will be provided. The topics include, modeling systems dynamics using discrete events, modeling manufacturing-oriented and service-oriented systems, random variable generation, model verification and validation, and statistical analysis of output.

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
