This is an introductory tutorial on the statistical aspects of computer simulation, and is intended to serve as a springboard to many of the other introductory tutorials that appear elsewhere in the Proceedings. We present a number of motivational examples, followed by material on random number and random variate generation, input analysis of the random variables that drive a simulation, and output analysis of the random observations that a simulation produces.
