Simulation for computer science majors: a preliminary report
The author is revising and restructuring an existing simulation course designed primarily for senior computer science majors by: 1) developing an integrated set of laboratory exercises based on computer science topics using commercially available software (GPSS/H); 2) incorporating these materials into a formal laboratory manual along with related computer science reference materials and instructions in the use of the software; 3) implementing a pilot course using this manual together with a single text in the theory of simulation; 4) preparing a syllabus and a detailed annotated course outline for the instructor, keyed to the manual and the text. The materials developed will be exible and highly modular allowing their adoption or adaptation at other institutions.
