In its ideal form, Web-based simulation should allow simulation models as well as simulation results to be as readily distributable and composable as today's Web documents. The rapid advances in Web technology, most notably Java, are helping to make this a possibility. Support for executable Web content, universal portability, component technology, and(More)
"Spreadsheet simulation" refers to the use of a spreadsheet as a platform for representing simulation models and performing simulation experiments. This tutorial explains the reasons for using this platform for simulation, discusses why this is frequently an efficient way to build simulation models and execute them, describes how to setup a spreadsheet(More)
Methods are presented for computing a joint confidence region and simultaneous confidence intervals for the mean of multivariate observations from a simulation operating in steady-state. These methods place observations into batches and use the batch means to compute the confidence region or confidence intervals. As sequential method to determine the batch(More)
This article discusses implementation issues for the LBATCH and ABATCH batch means procedures of Fishman and Yarberry (1997). Theses procedures dynamically increase the batch size and the number of contiguous batches based on the outcome of a hypothesis test for independence among the batch means. We show that both procedures require O(n) time and O(log 2(More)
Internet communications in general and the WorldWide Web specifically are revolutionizing the computer industry. Today, the Web is full of important documents and clever applets. Java applets and servlets are beginning to appear that provide useful and even mission critical applications. From the perspective of simulation, a future Web will be full of(More)
