This book describes a variety of teaching and academic research applications that effectively utilize FlexSim to: (1) provide guidelines, methods and tools for simulation modeling and analysis in a variety of educational settings and (2) address a variety of important design and operational issues in industry. Simulation is increasingly proving to be an important tool for supporting decision-making and problem-solving processes in many disparate domains, including the design, management and improvement of a wide range of operations systems in manufacturing, logistics, healthcare, etc. Achieving resource efficiency and minimizing negative externalities from operations represent two of today’s greatest challenges; modern simulation methods can help to overcome them. FlexSim is a prominent software package for developing discrete-event, agent-based, continuous, and hybrid simulations
