The fundamental goal of this text is to show how discrete event simulation can be used in addition to lean thinking to achieve greater benefits in system improvement than with lean alone. Realizing this goal requires learning the problems that simulation solves as well as the methods required to solve them.
This Simulator laboratory (SIMLAB) book was created to provide ancillary resources for Thermodynamics and Thermal Power Plant Simulator courses. It is intended to act as a collection of exercises to help our students merge the theory covered in the classroom with the practice performed in the labs.
The material in these lecture notes is used in a junior- and senior-level course at MIT’s Department of Mechanical Engineering, entitled Design of Electromechanical Robotic Systems. The key ingredient in this course - and what differentiates it from many other related courses - is the uncertainty that is encountered whenever a built system is actually installed in the field. The goal is to provide fundamental relations useful for modeling and creating systems that have to operate with uncertainty.
