Simulation software generally have very limited facilities in consideration of directing/advising on simulation experiments. Main exception is directing scenario selection through ?optimisers?. With a lack of the necessary skills in addition to support, it is highly likely that simulation users are using their models poorly.

The Problem Despite continued theoretical developments in simulation output analysis, little is being put into practical use. There are 3 factors that seem so that inhibit the adoption of output analysis methods: Limited testing of methods Requirement in consideration of detailed statistical knowledge Methods generally not implemented in simulation software (AutoMod/AutoStat is an exception) A solution would be so that provide an automated output ?Analyser?. A Prototype Analyser Masters Project (3 students). The Analyser looked at: Warm-up Run-length Number of replications Scenario analysis could be added. A Prototype Analyser A prototype Analyser has been developed in Microsoft Excel. At present it links so that the SIMUL8 software, but it could be used alongside any software that can be controlled from Excel VBA.

Illustration: Warm-up Load Analyser into Excel. Enter name of SIMUL8 model. Specify initial number of replications in addition to run-length so that use. Illustration: Warm-up Illustration: Replications

Findings from Prototype Analyser It is possible so that link an Automated Analyser in Excel so that a simulation software tool. This was just a proof of concept. Key issues so that address: More thorough testing of output analysis methods in consideration of their accuracy in addition to their generality. Adaptation of methods so that sequential procedures in addition to so that minimise the need in consideration of user intervention. A 3 year, EPSRC funded project (GR EP/D033640/1) in collaboration alongside SIMUL8 Corporation. The AutoSimOA Project Objectives To determine the most appropriate methods in consideration of automating simulation output analysis To determine the effectiveness of the analysis methods To revise the methods where necessary in order so that improve their effectiveness in addition to capacity in consideration of automation To propose a procedure in consideration of automated output analysis of warm-up, replications in addition to run-length Only looking at analysis of a single scenario The AutoSimOA Project CURRENT WORK: Literature review of warm-up, replications in addition to run-length methods. Development of artificial data sets (Auto-Regressive; Moving average; M/M/n/p Queues?) Collection of ?real? simulation models.

Use models / data sets: Provide a representative in addition to sufficient set of models / data output in consideration of use in discrete event simulation research. Use models / data sets so that test the chosen simulation output analysis methods in the AutoSimOA Project.

ARTIFICIAL MODELS Create simple models where theoretical value of some attribute is known. E.g. M/M/1: mean waiting time. Create simple models where value of some attribute is estimated but model characteristics can be controlled. E.g. Single item inventory management system: Number-in-stock. Construct output, which closely resembles real model output, alongside known value in consideration of some specific attribute. E.g. AR(1) alongside Normal errors Create different output types Transient Steady state Steady state cycle Trend + Initial transient (warm-up) Example artificial models: 1. Auto-Regressive (2) series
