Abstract

In this paper the use of metamodels to approximate the reverse of simulation models is explored. This purpose of the approach is to achieve the opposite of what a simulation model can do. That is, given a set of desired performance measures, the metamodels output a design to meet management goals. The performance of several neural network simulation metamodels was compared to the performance of a stepwise regression metamodel in terms of accuracy. It was found that in most cases, neural network metamodels outperform the regression metamodel. It was also found that a modular neural network performed the best in terms of minimizing the error of prediction.
