Modeling and Simulation Courses Overview
Simulation modeling allows system developers and analysts to predict the performance of existing or proposed systems under different configurations or operating policies. This process, carried out before the existing system is actually changed or the new system is built, eliminates the risk of unforeseen bottlenecks, underutilization or overutilization of resources, and failure to meet specified system requirements.
Unfortunately, many people still believe that simulation is largely an exercise in computer programming when, in fact, programming represents only 25 to 50 percent of a sound simulation study. Our courses on simulation modeling and analysis are designed to provide you with the complete set of skills actually needed for simulation-project success – vendor training or university courses on how to use a simulation-software product is clearly not sufficient. You will learn the latest and most-important simulation techniques in a small fraction of the time that you could by self study or by attending simulation conferences. Each topic builds on previous ones and is presented in an intuitive and understandable manner.
Public Simulation Courses
Public versions of the simulation courses are presented in the spring and fall of each year at conveniently located hotels. Course attendees have come from 20 countries.
Onsite Simulation Courses
Averill M. Law & Associates can present an onsite version of any public simulation course, which will generally be very cost-effective for the client organization. To date we have presented more than 250 onsite seminars on six continents.
