model. Other chapters in the Discrete Event module provide some tips you may find useful when building models and illustrate specific discrete event concepts, such as item generation, assigning properties to items, and activity-based costing.
The How To module that starts on page 564 includes chapters on topics relevant to all types of modeling, including creating a custom user interface, using mathematical and statistical func- tions, and employing different types of analysis for your models.
