Engineers will benefit from this book because it blends the theoretical aspects of simulations with a simulation package so they can put the concepts to practice. It utilizes the Arena Simulation Environment as the primary modeling tool for simulation. More detailed discussions of the statistical aspects of simulation are presented than are found in many other simulation language oriented textbooks. Special emphasis is placed on the computer programming aspects of simulation. The accompanying CD-ROM also contains the student version of Arena along with illustrations, solutions to several exercises, and additional files. With the help of numerous hands-on exercises and engaging material, engineers will learn how to apply the concepts to real-world situations.
