Abstract

This tutorial introduces some of the ideas, issues, challenges, solutions, and opportunities in deciding how to experiment with simulation models to learn about their behavior. Careful planning, or designing, of simulation experiments is generally a great help, saving time and effort by providing efficient ways to estimate the effects of changes in the model's inputs on its outputs. Traditional experimental-design methods are discussed in the context of simulation experiments, as are the broader questions pertaining to planning computer-simulation experiments.
