Graphic Simulation of a Machine-Repairman Model.
NAVAL POSTGRADUATE SCHOOL MONTEREY CA
Pagination or Media Count:
A discrete-event simulation of a stochastic process, a machine-repairman model, has been programmed on the IBM Personal Computer. The model consists of three helicopters, of which two are in service and one is in cold standby, with an option of one or two repairmen. The program output is a graphics display containing a system state-versus-time graph, a table of statistics, and animated figures that illustrate the current state of the system. The program user can directly observe the dynamics of the model as the fixed-increment, simulation clock advances. The user has the option of changing the following model parameters helicopter failure rate, repairman service rate, and the number of repairmen to employ. Originator supplied keywords include Graphic simulation Birth-death process Machine-repairman model and Microcomputer simulation. Thesis.
