The workshop will consist of an interactive session, a kind of jamming session in simulation starting with a brief introduction about the software package in which the essential skills are taught. Participants are encouraged to individually prepare a simulation problem that is preferably from their own production environment or background. These simulation problems of the participant will be modeled individually with collaboration of the teacher. The assumption is that this individual approach is the best and fastest way to learn all aspects of simulation and these are: building a model, verifying and validating a model and the analysis and reporting of results.
