This text is intended to help novices as well as seasoned professionals gain a better understanding of the construction and use of process simulation models using object-oriented modelling and programming. The book details both the fundamentals and implementation aspects of simulation modelling using C++. It aims to provide insight into the dynamic behaviour of various types of systems, which can be applied to operating systems, computer networks, real-time systems and other computer-related systems.
