Can someone suggest few good books on”Simulation Modelling” that can aid self-phased learning?.(other than Averill M Law). Even online links of good online lectures are welcome. I am essentially looking for resources that might explain neatly the essential steps involved in building a models, such like aiding with quantitative examples. Thank you.November 16, 2015 at 9:47 am #2397
If “simulation modeling” you mentioned here means discrete-event system simulation, you could consider to get your study in simulation started by reading the book Discrete-Event System Simulation, Authored by Jerry Banks, John S. Carson, Barry L. Nelson and David M. Nicol. It contains enough detail about each step of simulation study. A large number of case studies can also be found in this book.
If your interest is probability and statistics, you could consider the book simulation author by Sheldon M. Ross.November 16, 2015 at 11:35 am #2399
‘Simulation with Arena’ by David Kelton is a good book for learning about simulation and ARENA.December 6, 2015 at 6:40 pm #2439
I agree with Feifang. Discrete-Event System Simulation is a good book to learn simulation! Also I recommend using Arena to make simulations.December 7, 2015 at 2:35 am #2441
Karthi, have you taken the class on simulation modeling by professor Leyuan Shi. Its offered in the spring semester. You might want to take a look. Her class presentations are really good.December 8, 2015 at 11:01 am #2451
I agree with Aahnik. You should definitely take ISyE 620 in the spring semesterDecember 9, 2015 at 9:53 am #2457
Thanks Feifan for providing reference resources. AAhnik and Jagadish thanks you for your valuable information. But since I am graduating next semester, I’ve already decided on other courses to complete my requirement.But still, I can self-read from books suggested by Feifan.December 10, 2015 at 3:07 am #2458

Is Arena the major software model that was used in industrial for simulation modelling as well?December 14, 2015 at 2:26 pm #2489
QiWen, yes, Arena is one of the major software modeling systems that is commonly used.December 16, 2015 at 8:36 am #2493
MPX is also a simulation software used in addition to ARENA.December 17, 2015 at 12:52 am #2499

From what I had experienced, MPX is not a simulation software in classic sense. It is does not sample from a distribution and uses analytical queuing formula to calculate performance measures. I am not sure if they have made an upgrade.April 16, 2018 at 5:04 pm #3461
I would definitely take a look at learning the software AMPL. There is a free book for it, and is a really good software for simulation modeling especially linear programs.April 30, 2018 at 11:21 am #3622
If you are interested in using a simulation software other than ARENA then SIMIO is a good option. It is cheap and fast compared with ARENA.May 2, 2018 at 11:34 am #3680
Simulation Modeling and Analysis written by Averill Law is quite a good reference book for you to learn simulation modeling. It contains basically all the fundamental steps to build a simulation model. In terms of software, Arena or Anylogic as reference.
