Overview

An excellent introduction to SIMAN V, a leading-edge simulation language. Designed for the person who wants to begin simulating with SIMAN as quickly as possible, it emphasizes the language basics to provide quick instruction. Cinema is described within ARENA, a graphical environment that uses CAD-like drawing features. Covers handling constructs, complex modeling and several of the powerful extensions that have been added to the latest version of the language. Contains many examples and exercises to facilitate understanding and practical application.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
An introduction to the simulation modeling software SIMAN, which has been widely used since the early 1980s in manufacturing, service, communication, transportation, and health delivery systems. Focuses on the practical aspects of building models rather than on the underlying science and theory. Assumes some previous or concurrent study of simulation in general. Two 3.5" disks contain the software itself and the examples used in the text. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
