Manufacturing Systems Simulation
This is a final report of a project investigating the use of ProModel Manufacturing Simulation Software as a tool for capacity planning and performance evaluation of a large scale multi-processing computer system. One significant finding of this project is the ease with which ProModel was able to simulate the computer environment. This software may have provided too many alternative ways to model the various features and characteristics of the system. It also proved to be easy to modify, which allowed me to examine several different approaches to simulating the computer environment and testing different approaches to solving the scheduling problem.
