Discrete-Event Simulation and System Dynamics for Management Decision Making

Discrete-Event Simulation and System Dynamics for Management Decision Making By Sally Brailsford, Leonid Churilov, Brian Dangerfield

In recent years, there has been a growing debate, particularly in the UK and Europe, over the merits of using discrete-event simulation (DES) and system dynamics (SD); there are now instances where both methodologies were employed on the same problem. This book details each method, comparing each in terms of both theory and their application to various problem situations. It also provides a seamless treatment of various topics--theory, philosophy, detailed mechanics, practical implementation--providing a systematic treatment of the methodologies of DES and SD, which previously have been treated separately.
