Exploring the synergies among the domains of M&S and systems engineering (SE), the book describes how M&S and SE can help to address the complex problems identified as “Grand Challenges” more effectively under a model-driven and simulation-directed systems engineering framework.
Topics and features: examines frameworks for the development of advanced simulation methodologies; presents a focus on advanced modeling methodologies; reviews the reliability and quality assurance of models; discusses the specification and simulation of human and social behavior, including models of personality, emotions, conflict management, perception, and anticipation; provides a literature survey of the body of knowledge in M&S; highlights the conceptual, theoretical, and methodological foundations established by the pioneering work of Professor Tuncer Ören.
This authoritative volume offers inspiring and illuminating insights of benefit to all researchers, practitioners and graduate students in M&S, especially those interested in modeling complexity and simulating complex adaptive systems, and other Grand Challenges.
Based on over 20 years of evolution within a classroom environment, as well as on decades-long experience in developing simulation-based solutions for high-tech industries, Modeling and Simulation of Discrete-Event Systems is the only book on DES-M&S in which all the major DES modeling formalisms – activity-based, process-oriented, state-based, and event-based – are covered in a unified manner:
Modeling and Simulation of Discrete-Event Systems is an ideal textbook for undergraduate and graduate students of simulation/industrial engineering and computer science, as well as for simulation practitioners and researchers.
Offers examples of industry-standard modeling methodology that can be applied in steps to tackle any modeling problem in practice.
