Proceedings of the 31st conference on Winter simulation Simulation---a bridge to the future - WSC '99
This paper describes a Java-based system for allocating simulation trials to a set of P parallel processors for carrying out a simulation study involving direct-search optimization or response surface methodology. Unlike distributed simulation, where a simulation model is decomposed and its parts run in a parallel environment, the parallel replications approach allows a simulation model to run to completion with a unique set of input conditions. Since a simulation study typically involvesdoi:10.1145/324138.324311 fatcat:qewdrzb6jrdb7lemrkgnxstpdm
