OptQuest and Arena software provided the platform for the simulation modeling effort. Arena software proved to be very flexible and eliminated some of the constraints exhibited by traditional program management constructs such as PERT or CPM. Furthermore, the combined functionality of these software packages provided a powerful optimization modeling tool and is demonstrated in the three illustrative examples contained in this document.Table 13. Recommended Minimum Number of Simulations The number of replications represents the number of times the model is run in every simulation. ... If the best value does fall within the interval, then Arena runs another replication and checks again. As long as the ... Generally, 200 to 500 replications are needed to obtain an accurate estimate of the mean (OptQuest User Manual, 2007). Thereforeanbsp;...
