Abstract:

This paper reports on the state of the art of available optimization techniques which can be associated with computerized simulation models. Specifically, the paper focuses on findings from a literature search and contacts with professionals involved in current research on those optimization techniques which can be applied to the identification of an optimum value for a single output performance measure when a family of input variables can assume either continuous or discrete values. In addition, the research considers a set of measures of effectiveness which can be used to assess the relative merits of the various optimization techniques encountered without providing a numerical ranking.
