Screening is the first phase of an experimental study on systems and simulation models. Its purpose is to eliminate negligible factors so that efforts may be concentrated upon just the important ones. Successfully screening more than about 20 or 30 factors has been investigated only in the past 10 or 15 years with most improvements in the past 5 years. A(More)
Once a simulation model is developed, designed experiments may be employed to efficiently optimize the system. Designed experiments are used on "real" production systems as well. The first step is to screen for important independent variables. Several screening methods are compared and contrasted in terms of efficiency, effectiveness, and robustness. These(More)
