From the Back Cover
The only complete guide to all aspects and uses of simulation–from the international leaders in the field
There has never been a single definitive source of key information on all facets of discrete–event simulation and its applications to major industries. The Handbook of Simulation brings together the contributions of leading academics, practitioners, and software developers to offer authoritative coverage of the principles, techniques, and uses of discrete–event simulation.
Comprehensive in scope and thorough in approach, the Handbook is the one reference on discrete–event simulation that every industrial engineer, management scientist, computer scientist, operations manager, or operations researcher involved in problem–solving should own, with an in–depth examination of:
∗ Simulation methodology, from experimental design to data analysis and more
∗ Recent advances, such as object–oriented simulation, on–line simulation, and parallel and distributed simulation
∗ Applications across a full range of manufacturing and service industries
∗ Guidelines for successful simulations and sound simulation project management
∗ Simulation software and simulation industry vendors
About the Author
JERRY BANKS is a professor in the School of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology. He has taught simulation at the university level and in short courses for many years. He is a frequent author on the topic and a longtime consultant in the area.
Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon.com
The book is highly detailed and contains no-nonsense advice on approach to simulation of live systems, but it is not a tutorial.
For discrete simulation science this book is what Knuth is for algorithms. You do not start studying computer science by diving into Knuth head first. Same applies here.
Do yourself a favor and start with a good book on statistics, go through it end to end before you even open this one or you won't get past the second chapter.
Otherwise, really a treasure trove of valuable advice.
Don't buy if you need study dynamic models in diferential equations.
