Overview

Modeling and Simulation for Systems Engineering

Course Description

Simulation is the process of designing a model of a system and conducting experiments to understand the behavior of the system and/or evaluate various strategies for the operation of the system. Modeling and Simulation (M&S) has become an important tool in all phases of the acquisition process, and can be used within most systems' lifecycle processes. In this course, you will explore the foundations of M&S and how it is used in the systems-engineering process.
