Discrete Event Modeling in a New Transportation Simulation


  • David A. Jordan
  • Michael L. Bruce


This demonstration session will summarize the development a new service based transportation simulation as utilized by the Business Departments at Geneva College and Anderson University. The goals of this session are to present discrete event modeling as a valid business simulation technique and to introduce to current business professors, and/or interested individuals, a new service based simulation. This simulation seeks to model the decisions made by managers of a small trucking firm. It is hoped that this session will help attendees assess the benefits and challenges associated with using a service based simulation.
