Concise presentation of the state-of-the art techniques used in distributed information systems, modeling and simulation accompanied by valuable case studies.

Unabated cost reduction of powerful mini-computers and work-stations is changing the computational scenario; the migration from Mainframe Computers towards Distributed Computer Systems is underway and growing daily driven by the economics and flexibility of a distributed system.

This course presents the methodologies for effective modeling and simulation of computer operations in both the stand-alone and networked environment and prepares the participant to anticipate and assess the performance and functional impacts of distributed processing.

Applications and benefits:

This course will enhance your understanding of the fundamentals in computer system model development.

Who should attend:

The course introduces the modern concepts, methodologies and vast applications and benefits of using modeling and simulation in systems design and analysis. The material covered should serve as a reference, and as an invaluable resource to managers, system designers and analysts, engineers and scientists involved in, or exploring, the benefits of modeling and simulation. SOO-620 or equivalent experience in computer simulation is a prerequisite.
