A presentation of the underlying concepts and structure of SIMSCRIPT. It is maintained that the key to understanding the language of simulation and to developing a more rigorous approach to simulation is to have a SIMSCRIPT view of the world in terms of events, sets, and entities. A specific example of a simple job shop routine is given to support this view. The Memorandum concludes with a review of the 1963 status of SIMSCRIPT.
