GPSS/PC is an implementation of GPSS, the General Purpose Simulation System. It was created primarily as an interactive simulation environment for personal computers and dedicated workstations. GPSS/PC is distinguished by its visibility and interactivity. With the introduction of Version 2, it has added interactive graphics and animation to its simulation(More)
GPSS Worldti is a complete redesign and reimplementation of the popular GPS S/PCti Simulation Environment. The limitations of the old PC DOS environment and the emerging trends in desktop computing have combined to motivate dmstic changes which am planned for the new environment to be made available beginning in 1992. 1 DESIGN OBJECTIVES The quickly(More)
GPSS/PC is a popular implementation of the discrete event simulation language GPSS, the General Purpose Simulation System. GPSS/PC has interactive graphics and animation tightly integrated into its simulation environment. Its graphics windows allow viewing and manipulation of the simulation via an optional pointing device, and assertion of all simulation(More)
GPSS/PC is a new implementation of GPSS, the General Purpose Simulation System, with several interactive extensions to the user interface. Its overall design integrates a syntax directed statement parser with the run time system. This results in a number of advantages in the controllability of running simulations. Unlike traditional simulation language(More)
Simulation Studiom is the optional component of the GPSS World'' " Simtttation Environment responsible for user-created graphics and the animation of simulations. It can operate in any of three modes: closely linked online with a simulation, as a Post-Processor, or as a stand-alone draw and animation program. It is currently scheduled for release in the(More)
The theoretical aspects of operational analysis have been considered more extensively than matters of its application in practical situations. Since its relationships differ in their applicability, they must be considered separately when they are applied. In order to do this, the foundations of three such relationships are examined from an empirical point(More)
From its inception, GPSS/PC, itself, has always had features designed specifically to facilitate the mastery of the simulation environment by new users. Its basic design goals of visibility, control, and protection from unseen danger fit very nicely into the classroom.The GPSS/PC Student Version has been available to educational institutions at nominal(More)
GPSS (General Purpose Simulation System) is celebrating its 40<sup>th</sup> birthday this year. We recognize this notable birthday by assembling a panel of discussants consisting of some of the folks who have contributed significantly to GPSS and its use over the years. The panelists are Springer Cox (GPSS/PC and GPSS World), Jim Henriksen (GPSS/H and Proof(More)
