Performance Analysis of the Network Access Subsystem in AICPS Using Hybrid Simulation
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 8, issue 2, 1999, Pages 1~11
Advanced information communication processing system mainly consists of network access subsystems and a switching system. This paper provides performance analysis of a typical network access subsystem. The network access subsystem is modeled as a queueing network including a server providing polling services. The arrival process of messages to an input buffer is regarded as a Poisson process. Performance measures such as mean input buffer length and mean waiting time of meassages are obtained through simulation, for it is impossible to calculate the performance measures using an analytical method. Hybrid simulation is used to reduce the variance of estimators. The variance reduction effect on the mean waiting time is reported.
FOFIS : Forest Fire Information Systems
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 8, issue 2, 1999, Pages 13~28
The main purpose of this paper is to design and implement forest fire information system (FOFIS) for effective prevention of forest fire using GIS, database, 3-D graphics, and simulation techniques. In contrast to conventional fire information systems that are mostly based on the 2-D graphics and analytic modeling approaches, we have proposed the cell-based modeling approaches, i.e., spatial, data, and simulation modeling approaches. The cell-based spatial modeling is proposed by eliminating the cliff effect of the typical elevation model so that it can provide realistic 3-D graphics of the forest fire. The cell-based data modeling of geography, meteorology, and forestry information is also proposed. The cell-based dynamic modeling for forecasting of the fire diffusion is developed using the variable structure modeling techniques. Several simulation tests of FOFIS performed on a sample forest area of Chungdo, Kyungsangbukdo will demonstrate our approaches.
A Performance Evaluation of Fully Asynchronous Disk Array Using Simulation Method
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 8, issue 2, 1999, Pages 29~43
As real-time processing of data with large storage space is required in the era of multimedia, disk arrays are generally used as storage subsystems which be able to provide improved I/O performance. To design the cost-effective disk array, it is important to develop performance models which evaluate the disk array performance. Both queueing theory and simulation are applicable as the method of performance evaluation through queueing modeling. But there is a limit to the analytical method using queueing theory due to the characteristics of disk array requests being serviced in the parallel and concurrent manner. So in this paper we evaluate the disk array performance using simulation method which abstract disk array systems in the low level. Performance results were evaluated through simulation, so that mean response time, mean queueing delay, mean service time, mean queue length for disk array requests and utilization, throughput for disk array systems, can be utilized for capacity planning in the phase of disk array design.
A Study on the Development of Simulator for Performance Evaluation of Traffic Control using UPC Algorithm in ATM Network
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 8, issue 2, 1999, Pages 45~56
It is necessary that we should control the traffic to not only efficiently use the rich bandwidth of ATM network but also satisfy the users various requirements for service quality. However, it is very difficult to decide which control mechanism would be applied in real network because there are various types of ATM traffic and traffic control mechanisms. In this paper, a smart simulator is developed ot analyze the performance of a UPC(Usage Parameter Control) mechanism which is a typical traffic control mechanism. The simulator consists of a user interface that supports a menu-driven input form and a simulation program that is executed with the users input parameters. Especially, the simulator establishes more powerful and flexible simulation environment since it supports a more complex simulation applying various source traffic to several different UPC mechanisms at the same time and allows an arbitrary user-defined traffic in addition to some well-known traffic.
A Study on the Implementation of GPSS Program on a Parallel Computer
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 8, issue 2, 1999, Pages 57~72
With the rapidly increasing complexity of decision-marking or system development in the fields of industry, management, etc., modelling techniques using simulation has become more highlighted. Particularly, the advent of parallel computer systems not only has opened a new horizon of parallel simulation, but also has greatly contributed to the speed-up of the execution of simulation. The implementation of parallel simulation, however, is not a easy job for those who accustomed to the existing computer systems. And it is also necessarily confronted with the problem of synchronization conflict in the process. Thus, how to allow a wider community of users to gain access to parallel simulation while solving synchronization conflicts has become an important issue in simulation study. As a method to solve these problems, this paper is primarily concerned with the implementation of GPSS which is a generally used simulation language for discrete event simulation, onto a parallel computer using C-LINDA. For that, this paper, is to suggest a model and algorithm and to experiment it using a case.
Analysis of the Productivity of Automobile Painting Process Using Computer Simulation
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 8, issue 2, 1999, Pages 73~85
In this paper, the productivity estimation of the painting line in an automobile plant is studied. To improve the bottleneck and the weak point of the process, computer simulations are performed. In determining the system specification, the status of the conveyor lines and the other physical facilities are considered in order not to intervene with each other and to satisfy the painting facility restrictions. As simulation parameters, production performance ratio, number of hanger and dolley, down time, speed of conveyor and the pitch of a painting body are chosen on the basis of exhaustive field evaluation to study their effects on the capacity of the process. The results of the simulation show that we can improve the capability of they system without additional investment to the plant facility. The best condition for the maximum capacity of the process is selected by comparing the alternative computer simulation results. As a simulation language, Promodel is used which is very useful and easy to use in manufacturing oriented simulation.
A simulation of production planning strategies for the improvement of a manufacturing process
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 8, issue 2, 1999, Pages 87~100
A manufacturing environment without a computerized system causes numerous problems, since many important decisions are made based on the experience of veteran staffs. Especially, when a strategy for the improvement of manufacturing efficiency is considered, it is hard to predict the effect of the strategy. A solution to the problem without large investment of the computerized system is the simulation study. This paper shows the modeling and simulation based on DEVS(Discrete Event System Specification). Two types of models are implemented, one for representing the current production strategy and the other for the new strategy. The new strategy is expressed as priority rules within the model. The process in concern is the metal grating production process in which the size of the group, for applying a specific cutting and scheduling strategies, is one of the important factors in improving the production efficiency. Some reliable criteria for the evaluation related to the production effeciency are established from the simulation study.
A Simulation Analysis for Selecting In/Out Port Ratio in FAX Network System Operation
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 8, issue 2, 1999, Pages 101~109
In a commercial facsimile network system, a simulation analysis has been performed using ARENA due to the unavailability of theoretical models. The effect of a priority is compared with that of the current FCFS rule on the arriving call blocking rate and transmission time delay. The result shows that the priority rule reduces more service time delay as the arrival rate increases. A simulation analysis procedure is proposed to select optimal in/out port ratio at various hourly arrival rates with a given multiple-place transmission requests ratio.
Buckling Stability of Timoshenko Beams on Two-Parameter Elastic Foundations under an Axial Force
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 8, issue 2, 1999, Pages 111~122
The paper presents a stability analysis of uniform Timoshenko beams resting on two-parameter elastic foundations. The two-parameter elastic foundations were considered as a shearing layer and Winkler springs in soil models. Governing equations of motion were derived using the Hamilton's principle and finite element analysis was performed and the eigenvalues were obtained for the stability analysis. The numerical results for the buckling stability of beams under axial forces are demonstrated and compared with the exact or available confirmed solutions. Finally, several examples were given for Euler-Bernoulli and Timoshenko beams with various boundary conditions.
