COURSE # SOO-620
COMPUTER MODELING AND DISCRETE EVENT SIMULATION FUNDAMENTALS
In depth presentation of the Principles and Techniques used in Modern Computer Modeling and Simulation.
Rapid proliferation of work stations and powerful desk top computers, coupled with the advances in software tools, enable today for sophisticated modeling and simulation of distributed client-server based computer systems, multimedia information systems and management information systems. The enormous benefits, both financial and in productivity stemming from the applications of modeling and simulation call for wider understanding of this technology and of the modern tools at our disposal.
This course presents the fundamentals of computer modeling and discrete event simulation including advanced concepts and design methodologies.
Applications and benefits:
This course will enhance your understanding of the:
- Discrete event simulation strategies and applications.
