Workload:
Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
60 class hours (= 45 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 150 hours (equivalent to 5 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 105 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.
Recommended prerequisites (modules):
KIB-INF1 Informatics 1
KIB-INF2 Informatics 2
KIB-MAT1 Mathematics 1
KIB-MAT2 Mathematics 2
KIB-PRG1 Programming 1
KIB-PRG2 Programming 2

Learning outcomes:
 1.        After successfully completing this module, students will be able to model discrete systems and the behavior of such systems by means of an abstract description language. They will be capable of choosing the simulation methodology in an event-oriented, agent-based, meaningful way and of implementing it in the language.
 2.        Students will be able to model discrete systems and the behavior of such systems using the programming language ANYLOGIC in a suitable simulation methodology..
3.        They will be able to draw up test designs for the investigating different simulation scenarios.
4.        Students will be able to estimate which performance measures are suitable for the evaluation of the simulation studies (utilization, queue length, dwell times, etc.) and how to determine them.
5.        They will be able to apply methods for the _safe_ evaluation and comparison of simulation results from different scenarios
6.        Lastly, they will be able to find the best system configuration by studying the system

Teaching methods/Media:
Students will have the opportunity to practice on the computer.  This will take place in the PC lab AMSEL "Angewandte Mathematik, Statistik und eLearning" in Room 5306.  
This practical part of the course amounts to 80% of the module.
Furthermore, all case studies must be solved using the computer (AMSEL laboratory R 5306).
The ANYLOGIC software will be available in the lab.
