Extending resources to multiple busy states in discrete simulation Academic Article uri icon


  • This paper introduces and develops the concept of multiple busy state resources to simplify the process of stratifying statistics associated with resources. Most simulation languages recognize only busy and idle states. In many applications stratification of the busy state statistics is necessary to account for phenomena such as failures, repairs, maintenance, shift capacity changes, and cost tracking. These ideas are demon strated by way of an implementation in a discrete simulation language.
