Discrete Event Simulation (DES) Metamodeling – Splines with R and Arena

Discrete Event Simulation (DES) Metamodeling – Splines with R and Arena

Simulation Metamodeling - building and using surrogate models that can approximate results from more complicated simulation models - is an interesting approach to analyze results from complicated, computationally expensive simulation models. Metamodels are useful because they can yield good approximations of the original simulation model response variables using less computational resources. For an introduction to Metamodeling, refer to (Barton...

Making Sense of Simulation Models with Metamodels Part 1 – Low-Order Polynomials with Arena and R

Making Sense of Simulation Models with Metamodels Part 1 – Low-Order Polynomials with Arena and R

This is part 1 of a series of posts in which I will explore the utility of using metamodels to make sense of (and possibly optimizing) simulation models. If you used simulation modeling on a real project, you might be familiar with this fictional story: You spent long hours building and refining your simulation model (eg.: a Discrete Event Model). Hopefully,...

Arena2R – An R Package for Arena Simulation Users

Arena Simulation is a well-known Discrete Event Simulation Software. However, if you are a power user you might want to extend your analysis beyond what Arena’s Process Analyzer offers. In this tutorial, I’ll guide you through the main functions of Arena2R package. If you’re not an R user, fear not! Arena2R comes with an app you can use to explore...
