Abstract : States that simulation is necessary in every part of the system development process, beginning with the use of computer-operated models in the concept-development stage, and leading to the regular use of simulated inputs for training, procedural development, confidence testing, evaluation and system evaluation. Distinguishes between simulation and model-building by describ ing a model as a tool which may have many uses, of which simulation is one. Reports that application of a computerized model for simulation is generally called ''algorithmic simulation'', in contrast to ''operational simulation,'' in which an operational system is used in a simulated environment or simulation is applied with an operational environment. Discusses different forms of simulation available for use in the system development process. (Author)
