Simulation modelers have a diversity of educational backgrounds including several engineering and scientific disciplines, mathematics and computer related fields. Many of the skills required to achieve modeling proficiency are learned "on the job". Emerging trends in the demand for more complex and fully automated simulation applications are requiring… (More)
ExtendSim is used to model continuous, discrete event, discrete rate, and agent-based systems. This paper will focus on ExtendSim's tightly integrated simulation database which provides features that facilitate database-centric modeling and improve and streamline the modeling process.
