Simulation, once the magic wand of a simulation professional, has the opportunity to become a common tool for analyzing and solving real-world problems in today's fast paced, dynamic environment. Graduating students will have to be prepared to take advantage of that opportunity. Applying simulation today isn't like completing an exercise in a traditional text. Even case studies don't teach students how to actually solve real-world problems. There are good reasons to consider a change. The book Applied Simulation Modeling and Analysis using Flexsim, in use for two years, supports a fresh approach for teaching simulation. Its organization, application techniques, blending of theory with practice, and the introduction of topics not normally covered in traditional texts make it different. This book is all about applying simulation.
