TIME-CONSUMPTION ANALYSIS OF INPUT DATA ACTIVITIES IN DISCRETE EVENT SIMULATION PROJECTS
Paper in proceedings, 2007
The success of a discrete event simulation project is a reflection of the input data quality. In order to achieve high quality data a significant amount of time needs to be spent, either due to absence of data or problems with defining and extracting existing data from databases. This paper presents a distribution of the time-consumption for the activities in the input data phase during discrete event simulation projects. The results show where efforts need to be focused to decrease time-consumption and improve quality of input data management.
