We review techniques for optimizing stochastic discrete-event systems via simulation, for both discrete and continuous parameters. For discrete parameters, we focus on the techniques for optimization from a finite set: multiple-comparison procedures and ranking-and-selection procedures. For continuous parameters, we discuss sequential response surface methodology procedures and stochastic approximation gradient-based procedures, and describe gradient estimation based on perturbation analysis… CONTINUE READING
