ExtendSim for Discrete-Event System Simulation
Adhering to the layout of Discrete-Event System Simulation ("DESS") by Banks, et al., the textbook, ExtendSim for Discrete-Event System Simulation *, uses ExtendSim as a pedagogical tool to explore and expand upon the principles discussed in the DESS textbook. This use of ExtendSim makes simulation concepts more easily communicated by instructors and more accessible to students.
|Use ExtendSim to visually explore concepts such as entities, attributes, events, activities, and delays|
|Interactively examine the characteristics of single-server and multi-server queueing systems|
|Learn about event scheduling, random number generation, and the proper use of random distributions|
|Run trials and experiments on DESS examples using the Student version of ExtendSim|
ExtendSim for Discrete-Event System Simulation includes:
|Easy-to-use and informative ExtendSim implementations of DESS examples|
|Selected solutions to end-of-chapter exercises|
|ExtendSim tutorials specifically designed for the DESS book|
|Supplemental discussions based on the DESS chapters|
ExtendSim for Discrete-Event System Simulation included with ExtendSim
If you already own ExtendSim, you already have access to the textbook. ExtendSim for Discrete-Event System Simulation is included in most ExtendSim packages...Individual, Floating, and Student. (Note: the DESS textbook is not included with Analysis or Player RunTime).
From within the ExtendSim application, open the DESS Quickstart.mox model file in the DESS Textbook folder found in the Examples folder. This file contains links to the eTextbook, model files discussed in the book, and a tutorial on discrete event modeling.
