Course Description

Course Description

A Model is a simplification of reality with intent to promote understanding while simulation is the act of the execution with compression within space and time. Modelling and Simulation therefore involves the identification of the major system variables termed as states, the different levels of the states and the interactions between these states. It can be applied to both closed and open systems. It is a discipline, which finds wide and varied applications across many divides .We all model, all the time, the only difference is the representation of our models and simulation results .The formalization of the process is the discipline of “ Modelling and Simulation “.



The course is intended to equip students with skills in the basic system concept and definitions of system;

1.       techniques to model and  simulate various systems;

2.       modelling and simulation methodologies considering both practical and theoretical aspects

The ability to analyze a system and to make use of the information to improve the performance.


Learning outcomes

By the end of this Course, Students should be able to:

1.       Discuss the fundamental laws of simulation and modelling.

2.       Analyze random number generation, distribution sampling, and analysis of simulation output.

3.       Explain problem formulation, model building, data analysis, solution techniques, and evaluation of alternative designs/processes in complex systems/products.

4.       Discuss system concept, modelling methods, and different simulation techniques.

 analyze systems using casual loop and stock and flow diagrams.
