Industrial Engineering Professor's Textbook Published in Second Edition
Recently, the second edition of Simulation Modeling and Arena was published by Wiley Publishing. Authored by Manuel Rossetti, professor of industrial engineering, the book emphasizes a hands-on approach to learning statistical analysis and model building through the use of comprehensive examples, problems sets, and software applications.
With a unique blend of theory and applications, Simulation Modeling and Arena, Second Edition integrates coverage of statistical analysis and model building to emphasize the importance of both topics in simulation. Featuring introductory coverage on how simulation works and why it matters, the Second Edition expands coverage on static simulation and the applications of spreadsheets to perform simulation.
Rossetti has published over 85 journal and conference articles. In 2013, he received the Charles and Nadine Baum Teaching Award for the University of Arkansas, the highest teaching honor bestowed at the university. His research interests include the design, analysis, and optimization of logistics, manufacturing, health care, and transportation systems using computer simulation and operations research techniques.
