Simulation Models

During the design and implementation of a simulator, various techniques and strategies may be adopted to model the behaviour of a given system. Depending upon the system to be simulated, some techniques may be more favourable than others. Factors including the level of abstraction and the desired accuracy and speed of the simulation should be taken into consideration when designing the simulator engine. Traditionally, simulators are designed using either continuous or discrete-event techniques to simulate a given system.
