Petri net models are often of limited usefulness because the sys tems they represent are too complex to be represented in a clear manner. By using a Production Based Language simulation, the number of elements that must be explicitly drawn in the net diagram can be greatly reduced. A simulation...
Control of jobs being processed in a flow shop is important to management. Shop performance is affected by shop congestion, processing time variation, and the dispatching rule used to load the jobs. Most previous research has concentrated on the effects of varying these parameters in a job shop...
The concept of complex dynamical systems is an outgrowth of the mathematical theory of nonlinear dynamical systems, devel oped in the context of physiological modeling. This paper de scribes an exemplary application of this new modeling strategy to the cortisol regulation system, along with some...
In an earlier paper , 3 the three generally recognized simulation strategies were described, and their implications for discrete simulation languages and models were discussed. O'Keefe's technical comment 4 takes issue with the portrayal of the ac tivity scanning (AS) strategy in Reference 3 and...
Hooper, 9 in his review of world views in discrete-event simula tion, makes the common mistake of presenting activity scanning as it was first conceived in the 1950s and ignoring its subsequent development. For over 20 years, activity scanning has been sup planted by the three-phase approach,...
