Simulation modeling based on discrete event
approach may be used in many branches: network simulation, traffic simulation, industrial simulation. In other words it can be applied for many engineering purposes.
Discrete event simulation software
provides an effective way for receiving system characteristic in cases when it cannot be obtained with analytics, i.e. when exact formula either is not exist or its сomputational complexity does not allow to receive the result in a reasonable time.
Therefore, simulation modeling is an efficient technique for scientific research
All these advantages can be received with the use of free and open source simulation modeling software OpenSIMPLY.
Thanks to a strongly typed programming language, simulation modeling is very convenient for educational purposes
