Supply Chain Systems Simulation (3) Application of computer simulation to analysis and design of supply chain and information systems design; simulation experiments in SC&IS research.
SC&IS 545 Supply Chain Systems Simulation (3)
This course will provide an introduction to Monte Carlo and discrete-event simulation. Material will be aimed at the students who need to use simulation as a research tool at a sophisticated level. Although the focus of the course is the application of simulation to the analysis and design of supply chain and information decision systems, the material in this course will be appropriate for a much broader range of applications. Some time will be spend constructing simulation models of real-world systems, but the bulk of the course will be devoted to the statistical analysis required for correctly specifying input processes and interpreting the output of simulation models.
This is an elective course for graduate students in SC&IS, which may also serve graduate students in related fields of study. Student evaluations are based on a series of classroom assignments. This course will be offered during Spring semester to approximately 5-10 students.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
