Simulation Programming Using SIMSCRIPT II.
Description of a computer simulation of production and sales, designed to illustrate as many as possible of the programming features of SIMSCRIPT II in a natural, problem-oriented setting. The paper describes the system to be modeled; outlines problems the model is designed to study (namely, to determine the number of machines needed to provide adequate customer service); lists the complete SIMSCRIPT simulation program, well annotated; and gives a set of typical data cards. The last section works through the program in some detail, explaining the syntax and semantics of the statements. 22 pp.
