Industrial engineers Elizandro (Tennessee Technological U.) and Taha (U. of Arkansas) describe systems modeling and analysis to assess the performance of manufacturing, logistics, and other production systems ranging from health care to computers and data communication. They assume a fundamental familiarity with modeling concepts and the Excel computer program, but no prior programming experience. Their topics include basic queuing models, design environment for discrete event simulation (DEEDS), analyzing simulation results, facilities layout models, and supply chain models.
