The general concept of computer simulation is to use a computer to predict the behavior of a system that is to be developed. To achieve this goal, a system model of the real system is created. This system model is then used to predict actual system performance and to help make effective design decisions. This booklet introduces practical guidelines and specific techniques for developing and analyzing complex systems with the aid of computer simulation.
