Our research objective is to develop, test, and implement effective and efficient simulation techniques for modeling, evaluating, and optimizing systems in order to improve decision-making throughout the system development life cycle. Simulation is an important tool for modeling and predicting the performance of systems when analytical models do not exist or perform poorly. In addition, simulation provides powerful ways to visualize the behavior of a complex system before it is constructed.
