We propose to improve the efficiency of simulation optimization by integrating the notion of optimal computing budget allocation into the Cross-Entropy (CE) method, which is a global optimization search approach that iteratively updates a parameterized distribution from which candidate solutions...
Industrial Strength COMPASS (ISC) is a particular implementation of a general framework for optimizing the expected value of a performance measure of a stochastic simulation with respect to integer-ordered decision variables in a finite (but typically large) feasible region defined by...
In simulation of complex stochastic systems, such as Discrete-Event Systems (DES), statistical distributions are used to model the underlying randomness in the system. A sensitivity analysis of the simulation output with respect to parameters of the input distributions, such as the mean and the...
This article explores possibilities for designing and executing simulation models with specific analysis goals in mind, and shows that a tight coupling of the modeling and analysis phases in a simulation project can lead to dramatic improvements in the study results. Suggestions are made for how...
