What is the purpose of computer simulation? Computer simulations are used to study the dynamic behaviour of objects or systems in response to conditions that cannot be easily or safely applied in real life.
What is the benefit of using computer simulation models? Simulation allows you to explore ‘what if’ questions and scenarios without having to experiment on the system itself. It helps you to identify bottlenecks in material, information and product flows.
What is a computer simulation simple definition? In its narrowest sense, a computer simulation is a program that is run on a computer and that uses step-by-step methods to explore the approximate behavior of a mathematical model. Usually this is a model of a real-world system (although the system in question might be an imaginary or hypothetical one).
What is a simulation and why are they useful? A simulation is a model that mimics the operation of an existing or proposed system, providing evidence for decision-making by being able to test different scenarios or process changes. This can be coupled with virtual reality technologies for a more immersive experience.
