Overview

A Hands-On Introduction that Gets You Up and Running Fast Introduction to Siman V and Cinema V This hands-on book/disk package is a practical guide to SIMAN V, and its animator, Cinema V. Written by a simulation expert and his team, this focused resource concentrates on the language, rather than the theory of simulation. It introduces the process-interaction features of SIMAN, and shows you how to use them efficiently and productively. Introduction to Siman V teaches by example, including a wealth of computer inputs and outputs. Plus, it features a single running example throughout the text — an example that becomes increasingly complex as you master each new feature. Here’s How the Book is Organized:

  • Chapter 1 provides an overview of the simulation process
  • Chapter 2 provides an overview of Siman V
  • Chapters 3-11 describe Siman V using examples that increase in complexity as new features are added
  • Chapters 12 and 13 describe advanced features of Siman V
  • Chapter 14 introduces Cinema V within the Arena environment
Introduction to Siman V and Cinema V comes complete with disks containing computer codes for major examples and a student version of Siman V along with Input and Output Processors. The academic version of the Arena environment is available from Systems Modeling Corporation.
