An Enhanced Methodology for Reducing Time Consumption in Discrete Event Simulation Projects
Paper in proceeding, 2001

The purpose of this paper is to show how increased time savings can be obtained in discrete event simulation projects. The result includes an improved methodology that builds on traditional simulation procedures. The approach assures continuous comparison of the project’s present state and its objectives. This ensures, according to the revised methodology, the shortest possible time spent within the discrete event simulation project. In conclusion, this methodology will result in less time spent, and also a more profitable industrial solution concerning shorter time to market, and faster productivity improvements. Two examples of how this methodology can be used are also described.
