Flow Diagram, or Flowchart A graphical means of presenting the logic of a simulation model. It is a tool that helps in writing a simulation computer program.
Monte Carlo Simulation Simulations that experiment with probabilistic elements of a system by generating random numbers to create values for those elements
Operational Gaming The use of simulation in competitive situations such as military games and business or management games
Prewritten Simulation Programs Graphical programs that are prestructured to handle a variety of situations
Random Number A number whose digits are selected completely at random
Random Number Interval A range of random numbers assigned to represent a possible simulation outcome
Simulation A quantitative analysis technique that involves building a mathematical model that represents a real-world situation. The model is then experimented with to estimate the effects of various actions and decisions
Simulation Software Tools Programming languages especially designed to be efficient in handling simulation problems
Systems Simulation Simulation models that deal with the dynamics of large organizational or governmental systems
Validation The process of comparing a model to the real system that it represents to make sure that it is accurate
Verification The process of determining that the computer model is internally consistent and following the logic of the conceptual model
