The increasing complexity of systems has enhanced the use of simulation as a decision-support tool. Often, simulation is the only scientific methodology available to practitioners for the analysis of complex systems. However, only a small fraction of the practical benefits of simulation modeling and analysis have reached the potentially large user community because of the relatively high requirement of time, effort, and cost needed to build and successfully use simulation models.
