Engineering Systems SimulationCollege of Engineering
This course explains the principles of engineering systems modeling and simulation. It describes the different types of computer modeling and simulation: continuous, kinematics, and discrete-event simulations. It explains how these simulation techniques are utilized as design, analysis, problem-solving, and decision-support tools for complex engineering systems. Topics include: principles of systems modeling and simulation, types of simulation models and techniques, simulation software, queuing models, statistical models in simulation, selecting input probability distribution, building valid credible models, statistical analysis of output, and design and conduct of simulation experiments. Competencies and collaborative e-learning will be demonstrated by students conducting engineering systems simulation projects. A project report and an oral presentation are required.
