In this paper we shall discuss statistical aspects of the numerical technical called Monte Carlo simulation. In the present section we examine Monte Carlo simulation in general. Any solution method using random numbers (or pseudorandom numbers) we call a Monte Carlo method. As we know random...
GPSS 1100 is the most recent implementation of the GPSS programming language on the large-scale UNIVAC systems, specifically including the UNIVAC 1108. The language has been in existence for several years now, and has evolved through the usual versions and growing pains. It offers a number of...
The Problem Corner feature for this issue takes the form of a one-question quiz for those SIGSIM members who know GPSS. The quiz question is given immediately below. The answer to the quiz appears at the bottom of the page, upside down.
Simulation models of large, complex, "real world" applications have occasionally earned the reputation of eating up hours of computer time. This problem may be attributed in part to difficulties such as slow stochastic convergence. However, an additional problem lies in the fact that a...
The production TSO system at Standard Oil has been running since August 1973. Prior to this date, several limited test systems with small user groups were run, to collect information on modifications necessary to support interactive programming in a manner which would conform to current...
The availability and quality of parking plays an important role in shaping the overall service provided by the highway system. The usefulness of the automobile can be impaired if the driver is unable to find convenient and reasonably priced parking in the vicinity of his final destination....
The development of a new simulation language, GASP IV, is announced. Who cares? Why should you bother to invest the time to learn the peculiarities of someone else's design? You would rather do it yourself and be certain of the results, or would you? I would like to try to convince you that GASP...
The authors present this paper in the context of a successful acquisition of a multi user large scale batch processing system. They discuss the role of simulated demand (a) in determining basic system requirements, (b) as the major part of system specifications made available to vendors and (c)...
The field of discrete simulation of computer systems has been the subject of much criticism, particularly with respect to the amount of time required to construct programming models from a system design. Reduction of this lead time is a step toward easing the task of simulating large, discrete...
