Advanced Simulation and Discrete/Continuous Modeling

This course is a three-day course designed as part of the Dis­crete Event Sim­u­la­tion series. The course cov­ers advanced top­ics for mod­el­ing com­plex real-world prob­lems. Prin­ci­ples and fun­da­men­tal con­cepts involved in dis­crete event sim­u­la­tion and the per­ti­nent Are­na con­cepts and con­structs. The advanced course cov­ers a com­pre­hen­sive review on con­tin­u­ous sim­u­la­tion, com­bined discrete/​continuous sim­u­la­tion, Flow Process Tem­plate using tanks, reg­u­la­tors and reg­u­la­tor sets to mod­el flow, imple­ment­ing Pseu­do Agent-based mod­el­ing tech­niques, and an intro­duc­tion to using Visu­al Basic for Appli­ca­tions with Are­na. The course com­ple­ments the­o­ry with hands-on expe­ri­ence using Arena.
