Simulation Study Using Simul8

Simulation Study Pilkington Library Main Issuing Desk Abstract: This paper investigates the activity of the main issuing desk at the 3rd floor of Pilkington Library during weekdays between 5 and 6pm. The aim is to find ways of minimizing queuing times and respond to flexibility in demand. Two sets of data have been analysed and transposed into a simulation study using the Simul8 software package. The results of the simulation are presented in support of our optimization proposals. Introduction ...

Simul8 Report

MATH2013 Simulation Assignment 1.0 Introduction The aim of the assignment was to find a staffing solution for a call centre with two types of calls (1, 2) and three types of agents, two of which specialists (agent 1 and agent 2) and a generalist (agent 3) who handles both types of calls on two types of days- Heavy 1, with more type 1 calls and Heavy 2, with more type 2 calls. The staffing solution should meet two performance constraints: • The Quality of Service, QoS, should be at least 70%...

SIMULATION • WHAT is Simulation ? • WHY is Simulation required ? • HOW is Simulation applied ? • WHERE is Simulation used ? DEFINITION • Simulation is a representation of reality through the use of model or other device, which will react in the same manner as reality under a given set of conditions. • Simulation is the use of system model that has the designed characteristic of reality in order to produce the essence of actual operation. • According to Donald G. Malcolm, simulation...

Computer Simulation

Computer Simulation * A software program that runs on any computer that attempts to simulate some phenomenon based on a scientist's conceptual and mathematical understanding of the given phenomenon. * The scientist's conceptual understanding is reduced to an algorithmic or mathematical logic, which is then programmed in one of many programming languages (Fortran, C, C++, etc.) and compiled to produce a binary code that runs on a computer. * Have become a useful part of modeling...

Simulation Reflection

This paper is a reflection on three simulations as each relates to strategic planning. The first simulation, “Thinking Strategically,” highlights the importance of environmental scanning. The second simulation, “Developing Grand Strategies,” challenged decisions made for a company which lead to effective strategy formulation and choices. The third simulation, “Creating a Strategic Road Map,” provided a simulated experience of how to build a strategic roadmap focusing on the importance and effectiveness...
