Making efficient simulation experiments interactively with a desktop simulation package

Cheng, R.C.H. and Lamb, J.D. (2000) Making efficient simulation experiments interactively with a desktop simulation package Journal of the Operational Research Society, 51, (4), pp. 501-507.

Record type: Article


It is shown how a design of simulation experiments methodology can be used interactively with practical simulation models constructed in a desktop simulation package (SIMUL8). The methodology includes new ideas on how to improve the accuracy of a simulation response. It is implemented as a set of computer program modules that are not specific to a particular simulation model and provide an interface that lets the modeller construct an efficient simulation experiment with only an operational understanding of how the methodology works. The methodology and program modules are illustrated with a practical simulation model, and the results show how they can improve simulation response with negligible increase in computational effort.
