Abstract:

This paper describes the development of a technique to display microcomputer simulation output data graphically, using spreadsheet software. The simulation data was generated by GPSSPC simulation software and displayed using Lotus 1-2-3 spreadsheet software. Snapshots of data were taken at regular intervals during the simulation. The simulation output data files were then translated into Lotus 1-2-3 worksheet files by use of the Data Interchange Format DIF. Once translated into the worksheet format the snapshots of data were combined onto a single worksheet which contained macros to generate the graphs.
