Organisatorisches (Übung):

Prior participation in the course "Simulation and Modeling 1" is strongly recommended.

Inhalt (Vorlesung):

The class is project-oriented: participants conduct one larger simulation project in a team (3-4 students). The simulation project covers all typical phases including project planning, requirements analysis, data collection, input modeling, conceptual modeling, verification, validation, simulation runs, output analysis, result presentation and documentation. The lecture covers:

  • simulation project management, presentation, and documentation techniques
  • detailed simulation project case studies,
  • advanced topics in simulation such as variance reduction techniques, rare event simulation, parallel and distributed simulation, standards-based simulation, and combination of simulation with testing.

The project teams also present their results in the lectures. The exercises are used for team meetings. Implementations, simulation runs, etc. can be performed on computing facilities of the Computer Science 7 Group with commercial/academic simulation packages (e.g., AnyLogic/OMneT++/ns-3/SimTAny) in reserved computer hours. Possible projects encompass but are not restricted to: elevators, university canteen (Mensa), crossing with traffic lights, gas station, supermarket, hospital emergency reception, flexible manufacturing system, houses or neighborhood with renewable energy systems, battery powered devices. Own project ideas are possible and welcome.

Inhalt (Übung):

The participants conduct a simulation project over the whole semester. Implementations, simulation runs, etc. are performed at the computer science PC pool with commercial simulation packages in reserved computer hours.
The excercise classes are used for project meetings, the computer-oriented work can be performed in the reserved computer hours.

Die Vorlesung sowie das gesamte schriftliche Material wird auf Englisch angeboten. Bitte wechseln sie zu der englischsprachigen Seite.
