Understanding Discrete-Event Simulation

Watch the videos in this MATLAB® Tech Talk series to learn the fundamentals behind discrete-event simulation. Discrete-event simulation is a simple, versatile way of describing a process. You can use it to build complex models that explore fundamental questions such as latency, utilization, and bottlenecks. The video series also outlines how to use stochastic processes to approximate details of a system that you can’t model. You’ll learn about how you can use discrete-event simulation for operations research, and you’ll explore how to use discrete-event simulation to evaluate the performance of digital communication systems.
