Enabling a simulation capability in the organisation

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Enabling a Simulation Capability in the Organisation addresses the application of simulation modelling techniques in order to enable better informed decisions in business and industrial organisations. The book’s unique approach treats simulation not just as a technical tool, but within as a support for organisational decision making, showing the results from a survey of current and potential users of simulation to suggest reasons why the technique is not used as much as it should be and what are the barriers to its further use. By incorporating an evaluation of six detailed case studies of the application of simulation in industry by the author, the book will teach readers: •the role of simulation in decision making; •how to introduce simulation as a tool for decision making; and •how to undertake simulation studies that lead to change in the organisation. Enabling a Simulation Capability in the Organisation provides an introduction to the state of the art in simulation modelling for researchers in business studies and engineering, as well a useful guide to practitioners and managers in business and industry.
