Structured Models and Dynamic Systems Analysis: The Integration of the IDEF0/IDEF3 Modeling Methods and Discrete Event Simulatio
The role of modeling and simulation is receiving much press of late. However, the lack of practice in employing a link between the two is alarming. A static model is used to under...
