ExtendSim for Discrete-Event System Simulation

eTextbook; includes ExtendSim Student

The standard in discrete event simulation software combines with the standard in undergraduate simulation textbooks!

Adhering to the layout of Discrete-Event System Simulation ("DESS") by Banks, et al., the textbook, ExtendSim for Discrete-Event System Simulation *, uses ExtendSim as a pedagogical tool to explore and expand upon the principles discussed in the DESS textbook. This use of ExtendSim makes simulation concepts more easily communicated by instructors and more accessible to students.

Use ExtendSim to visually explore concepts such as entities, attributes, events, activities, and delays
Interactively examine the characteristics of single-server and multi-server queueing systems
Learn about event scheduling, random number generation, and the proper use of random distributions
Run trials and experiments on DESS examples using the LT version of ExtendSim

ExtendSim for Discrete-Event System Simulation includes:

Easy-to-use and informative ExtendSim implementations of DESS examples
Selected solutions to end-of-chapter exercises
ExtendSim tutorials specifically designed for the DESS book
Supplemental discussions based on the DESS chapters
Access to supplemental instructor material **
A limited (student) version of the ExtendSim software
