Product DescriptionThis book provides and introduction to simulation modeling using Simio. It is written in what might be called a participatory style. You don't sit and read the book without a computer loaded with Simo.
Simulation Modeling With Simio expects your activie participation in using Simio as you turn the pages. We think that simulation is not a spectator sport you have to do it to develop skill with it. You develop that skill by practice modeling -- the more you practice the better you become.
