授業の概要
/Course outline
Computer and network modeling and simulation is a key step in the design and procurement of new computer systems including processors, languages, operating systems, networking architectures, or database systems. In all cases, it is necessary to compare performance of new computer systems with that of similar systems. This course provides these professionals with fundamental performance analysis techniques and require a minimal level of statistical sophistication.
授業の目的と到達目標
/Objectives and attainment
goals
The purpose of this course is to give basic modeling, simulation, and analysis background to systems analysts so that students are able to understand performance terminology, correctly design performance experiments, use simple queueing or simulation models, and interpret results.
