Abstract:

In many cases a simulation study may be viewed as an experimental situation in which a number of factors independent variables are to be investigated. There are, however, a number of special characteristics that distinguish simulation experiments from statistical experiments in general. In this paper we discuss three topics which we feel are of particular interest and relevance in the simulation context. These are 1 Identification of the important factors i.e., input variables 2 Investigation of the statistical relationship between the output and input variables 3 Determination of the combination of factor levels for which the response i.e., output variable is optimized and 4 The use of variance reduction techniques.
