Course Code and Name: SEEM3410 System Simulation

Course Objectives:

 

To provide general theory, methodology and technical skills of all the important aspects of a simulation study, including input analysis, modeling, random number generating, modeling validation, output data analysis, and simulation programming.

Course Outcomes:

 

1. Able to obtain the general theory, methodology and technical skills of all the important aspects of a simulation study, including input analysis, modeling, random number generating, modeling validation, output data analysis, and simulation programming

 

2. Able to describe the behavior of systems

 

3. Able to construct theories or hypothesis that account for the observed behavior

 

4. Able to use the model to predict future behavior, i.e., the effects produced by changes in the system or in its method of operation.
