Simulation for Educational Facility Planning: Review and Bibliography.
Manji, Ashraf S.
This paper provides an overview of selected simulation models pertinent to the problems of educational facility planning. Emphasis is placed on computer simulation models partly because of the greater potential utility of computer simulation models in coming to grips with facility planning problems. The overall objective is to document the state-of-the-art in simulation research as it relates to the planning of educational facilities and to help administrators and planners assess what simulation can and cannot do for them. The use of simulation models for school facilities planning has lagged far behind their use in other fields. This lag is no doubt a consequence of the current state-of-the-art in school facilities planning with its heavy emphasis on check lists and procedural guidelines at the neglect of the model building approach. Consequently, it can reasonably be expected that as the field of educational facility planning becomes more systematic and scientific, the use of simulation models will increase. A selected bibliography of simulation works pertinent to the problems of educational facilities planning is provided in four parts: (1) general works, (2) university planning, (3) school planning, and (4) urban planning.
