Simulation Foundations, Methods and Applications

Modeling and Simulation in the Systems Engineering Life Cycle

Core Concepts and Accompanying Lectures

Editors: Loper, Margaret L. (Ed.)

  • Describes how systems engineering principles can be used in the development of models and simulations
  • Addresses how modeling and simulation is used in each phase of the systems engineering life cycle
  • Discusses a wide variety of methodologies, examining the types of problems each method is best suited to address, rather than focusing on one specific methodology

About this book

This easy to read text provides a broad introduction to the fundamental concepts of modeling and simulation (M&S) and systems engineering, highlighting how M&S is used across the entire systems engineering lifecycle. Features: reviews the full breadth of technologies, methodologies and uses of M&S, rather than just focusing on a specific aspect of the field; presents contributions from specialists in each topic covered; introduces the foundational elements and processes that serve as the groundwork for understanding M&S; explores common methods and methodologies used in M&S; discusses how best to design and execute experiments, covering the use of Monte Carlo techniques, surrogate modeling and distributed simulation; explores the use of M&S throughout the systems development lifecycle, describing a number of methods, techniques, and tools available to support systems engineering processes; provides a selection of case studies illustrating the use of M&S in systems engineering across a variety of domains.
