The book promotes a hands-on approach to simulation. An accompanying CD contains a version of ProModel, a ProModel tutorial and ProModel lab solutions. ProModel, a widely used simulation language, is covered extensively in the text. Lab exercises walk students through the use of ProModel to do statistical distribution fitting, basic modeling, model verification and debugging, as well as output analysis and optimization. A set of cases in manufacturing, warehousing, and service industries is also provided and can be assigned as simulation projects.Harrell, Charles R. is the author of 'Simulation Using Promodel-text Only' with ISBN 9780072341447 and ISBN 0072341440.
