    Simulation Using ProModel helps students build competence and confidence in the use of simulation through hands-on application. The text features a blend of theory and practice, real-life examples, case studies, and lab exercises using ProModel to help students develop their knowledge and abilities.

    Part I consists of 14 study chapters. The first four chapters introduce simulation, its application to system design and improvement, and how simulation works. Chapters 5 through 11 cover the practical and theoretical aspects of conducting a simulation project, including applying simulation optimization. Chapters 12 through 14 cover applications of simulation to manufacturing, material handling, and service systems.

    Part II features 14 labs that correlate with the 14 chapters in Part I. Each lab guides students through the steps of modeling a situation using ProModel and then provides exercises to further develop their skills.
