In a recent blog post, David Sturrock lays out the Simulationist Bill of Rights. This post, a follow up to his Simulation Stakeholder's Bill of Rights, finds David exploring the reasonable expectations a simulationist can have in a project.
"The simulation bill of rights you passed along to us from the workshop are brilliant. My stakeholders love them and along with the project steps are making the development go very well."
Nicholas Wright, Industrial Engineer at CSG International

This paper introduces Simio to users new to simulation. It is intended for the manufacturing engineer, hospital quality engineer, logistics specialist, six sigma black belt, lean system manager, etc., who would like to see how Simio can improve system performance. We discuss the use and benefits of simulation, the basic concepts of modeling, and how to get started using Simio in your decision making.
This paper describes a new modeling system that simplifies model building through the use of intelligent objects. The intelligent objects, built by modelers, may be reused in multiple modeling projects. Although this framework is focused on object-oriented modeling, it also supports discrete event, process, and agent-based modeling to provide high flexibility in a single tool.
