STATISTICAL CONSIDERATIONS IN COMPUTER SIMULATION EXPERIMENTS,
RAND CORP SANTA MONICA CALIF
Pagination or Media Count:
This report discusses some statistical questions related to the analysis of digital computer simulation experiments. The remarks are confined to systems simulations that are or that contain queueing networks for example, inventory models and job shop manufacturing facilities. The basic assumption is that these systems contain elements of random behavior so that the system output is a random variable. This paper describes some fundamental statistical problems that should be recognized in a simulation experiment from the initial phase of problem definition through the final stage of analysis of results.
