Combined Correlation Methods for Multipopulation Metamodel
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 1, issue 1, 1992, Pages 1~16
This research develops two variance reduction methods for estimating the parameters of the experimental simulation model having multiple design points based on an approach focusing on reduction of the variances of the mean responses across multiple design points. The first method extends a combined approach of antithetic variates and control variates for a single design point to the multipopulation context with independent streams across the design points. The second method extends the same strategy in conjunction with the Schruben-Margolin method for improving the first method. We illustrate an example for implementing the second method. We expect these two approaches may improve the estimation of the parameters of interest compared with the control variates method.
Analysisi of Multi-Layer P.C.B. Manufacturing Process by Simulation
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 1, issue 1, 1992, Pages 17~24
The capacity of the drilling process in Multi-Layer PCB fabrication can be affected by various process parameters determining material flows in the unit operations. The ratio of mass-lamination to pin lamination and the number of stacks as the most critical paramaters, among them, were chosen on the basis of exhaustive field evaluation to study their effects on the capacity of the process. The best alternative condition for maximum capacity of the process was selected by simulation of process.
Construction of a Knowledge Based Hybrid Simulation Environment
Kim, Myoung-Hee ;
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 1, issue 1, 1992, Pages 25~30
A knowledge based hybrid simulation environment has been established which supports the simulation procedure from the modeling step to the experimentation step by providing various tools, query, and advisory. The knowledge base in the established environment uses the If-Then Rule to transfer the fact input from the user to the act for the execution of the simulation process. Simulation non-experts are the user target and non-specific area is the application target.
Resampling Technique for Simulation Output Analysis
Kim, Yun-Bae ;
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 1, issue 1, 1992, Pages 31~36
To estimate the probability of long delay in a queuing system using discrete-event simulation is studied. We contrast the coverage, half-width, and stability of confidence intervals constructed using two methods: batch means and new resampling technique; binary bootstrap. The binary bootstrap is an extension of the conventional bootstrap that resamples runs rather than data values. Empirical comparisons using known results for the M/M/1 and D/M/10 queues show the binary bootstrap superior to batch means for this problem.
Modeling of Petri Nets Using Relatinal Algebra
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 1, issue 1, 1992, Pages 37~47
This paper proposes an analysis method of petri nets(PNs) using the relational algebra(RA). More wpecifically, we represent PNs in relations of the relational model. Based on such representation, we first develop an algorithm for generating reachability trees of PNs. we then develop an algorithm for generating reachability trees of PNs. We then develop algorithms for analyzing properties of PNs, such as boundedness, conservation, coverability, reachability, and liveness. The advantage of this approach is as follows: First, the algorithms represented by RA can be easity converted to a query language such as SQL of the widely used, commerical relational database management systems(DBMSs). Second, we can alleviate the problem of state space explosion because relational DBMSs can handle large amounts of data efficiently. Finally, we can use the DBMS's query language to interpret the Petri nets and make simulation.
The Robustness of Queueing Network Models in FMS Production Plans
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 1, issue 1, 1992, Pages 48~54
This study discusses the performance evaluation of queueing network methodologies as used for the planning of FMS production systems. The possibility of applications and utilities of queueing network models is investigated for FMS producton plans. Experimental results by queueing network models such as CAN-Q, MVAQ and results by detailed simulation models written in SIMAN are compared and some propositions are presented based on the results of the experiments.
Optimizing Robot's Service Movement in a Robot-Centered FMC
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 1, issue 1, 1992, Pages 55~63
This paper presents a simulation based analysis of a service robot operating in a robot-centered FMC, in which the robot is located at the approximate center of the cell and the machines are arranged in a partial circle around it. The robot's function is to locate and service the parts which require a series of unloading, moving, and loading operations. The main purpose of the analysis is to determine the best movement decision for the robot's arm in each instance. The results from the study, based on both statistical and nonstatistical analysis suggest the best policy for the robot's arm's movement that holds promise for application to the robot-centeredFMC.
An Implementation of the DEVS Formalism on a Parallel Distributed Environment
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 1, issue 1, 1992, Pages 64~76
The DEVS(discrete event system specificaition) formalism specifies a discrete event system in a hierarchical, modular form. DEVSIM++ is a C++based general purpose DEVS abstract simulator which can simulate systems modeled by the DEVS formalism in a sequential environment. This paper describes P-DEVSIM++which is a parallel version of DEVSIM++ . In P-DEVSIM++, the external and internal event of DEVS models can by processed in parallel. For such processing, we propose a parallel, distributed optimistic simulation algorithm based on the Time Warp approach. However, the proposed algorithm localizes the rollback of a model within itself, not possible in the standard Time Warp approach. An advantage of such localization is that the simulation time may be reduced. To evaluate its performance, we simulate a single bus multiprocessor architecture system with an external common memory. Simulation result shows that significant speedup is made possible with our algorithm in a parallel environment.
Validation Test of DEVS Models using SPN
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 1, issue 1, 1992, Pages 77~86
In this paper, we study validation test methods of DEVSA(Descrete Event system Specification) models using SPN(Stochastic Petri Net) models. We discuss conventional validation test methods, by which DEVS models can be transformed to SPN models, by reviewing the features of DEVS model. Based on the model transformation method, we define a new homogeneous function for validation test and suggest a new validation test method of DEVS models using the property of SPN models and the new homogeneous function.
Development of Simulation Tool SMPLE and Its Application to Performance Analysis of Multiprocessor Systems
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 1, issue 1, 1992, Pages 87~102
This paper presents the development of event-driven system level simulation tool SMPLE(Smpl Extende, an extention fo smpl) and its application to the performance analysis of multiprocessor computer systems. Because of its data structure, it is very difficult to change, expand or add new functions to simulation language smpl implemented by MacDougall. In SMPLE, we change data structure with structure and pointer, add new functions, and enable dynamic memory management. Using new data structure, facilities, and functions added in SMPLE, we simulate job processing of a shared bus multiprocessor system with autonomous hierarchical I/O subsystem. We set system performance contribution of subsystems and units. The impact of disk I/O on system performance is evaluated under vairous conditions of number of processors, processing power, memory access time and disk seek time.
