Abstract

Much effort goes into building and validating simulation models. Similar care is necessary in the use of the model to support decision making. Good simulation experiment design is important to get useful and valid insights for specific management questions. This introductory tutorial gives an overview of experiment design techniques for justifying and planning a series of simulation runs to uncover the impact of system design parameters on simulation output performance. Graphical methods are emphasized.
