Computer Simulation as an Aid for Management of an Information System.
Simmonds, W. H.; And Others
The aim of this study was to develop methods, based upon computer simulation, of designing information systems and illustrate the use of these methods by application to an information service. The method developed is based upon Monte Carlo and discrete event simulation techniques and is described in an earlier report - Sira report R412 Organizing and Planning Complete Production and Service Oriented Systems. This report discribes the programme of analysis and experimentation carried out using the model and the results obtained. The report is in seven sections. Sections 3 and 4 summarize the structure of the information service studied, the Sira Industrial Communications Group, and the method of modelling. Section 5 describes the data collected in order to quantify the model and discusses difficulties encountered. The programme of analysis and experimentation is detailed in Section 6 and the final section interprets and presents the results obtained. (Author/NH)
