Introduces the seven unique niches of simulation and modeling. Recognize and understand the keywords and concepts.
- Live Rehearsal
From the Gladiators to business role-playing to military exercises and childhood education - explore the impact of live rehearsal.
- Virtual Reality
Immersive devices, computer image generation, visualization techniques, digital environments and distributed worlds.
- System Analysis
Operations research, game theory, Monte Carlo techniques, Lagrange Multipliers, QJM, and scientific approaches to decision-making.
- Discrete Event Simulation
Event scheduling, activity scanning, process interaction, random numbers, random variates, simulation languages, modeling tools and parallel simulation.
From custom interfaces to standard protocols, service-based infrastructures, frameworks, and shared modeling environments.
Simulation as a real-time stimulus for decision-making, leadership development, and business prediction.
The tools of science, business, and the military move to computer games, video arcades, theme parks and the Internet.
