An important use for discrete-event simulation models lies in comparing and contrasting competing design alternatives without incurring any physical costs. This article presents a survey of the literature for two widely used classes of statistical methods for selecting the best design from among a finite set of <i>k</i> alternatives: ranking and selection(More)
Discrete-event simulation optimization is a problem of significant interest to practitioners interested in extracting useful information about an actual (or yet to be designed) system that can be modeled using discrete-event simulation. This paper presents a brief survey of the literature on discrete-event simulation optimization over the past decade (1988(More)
This paper examines the design and development of a discrete-event (visual) simulation model of a physician clinic environment within a physician network. Biological & Popular Culture, Inc. (Biopop) sought to partner with healthcare professionals to provide high-quality, cost-e!ective medical care within a physician network setting. Towards this end, a(More)
Discrete-event simulation models are often constructed so that an analyst may compare two or more competing design alternatives. This paper presents a survey of the literature for two widely-used statistical methods for selecting the best design from among a finite set of k alternatives: ranking and selection (R&S) and multiple comparison procedures (MCPs).(More)
This paper examines the construction and implementation of a simulation model that supports the design and development of the Queston Physician Network. Queston seeks to partner with health care professionals to provide high quality, cost-effective medical care. Towards this end, a simulation model encompassing both the operations of a Queston clinic and a(More)
