Design and analysis of simulation experiments
TLDR
We define simulation as the process of designing a model of a real system and conducting experiments with this model for the purpose either of understanding the behavior of a system or of evaluating various strategies for the operation of the system. Expand

A sensitivity analysis of a back-propagation neural network for manufacturing process parameters
TLDR
Back-propagation neural networks that represent specific process parameters in a composite board manufacturing process were analyzed to determine their sensitivity to network design and to the values of the learning parameters used in the back- Propagation algorithm. Expand

Minimum mean-squared-error estimators for simulation experiments
TLDR
We propose a systematic methodology for obtaining a near optimal mean-squared-error estimator for the mean of a discrete, random event, autocorrelated process which has experienced a transient start-up condition. Expand
