(Meeting Co-Sponsored with IEEE)

Computer Simulation Tools for Engineering Managers

Prof. Barry L. Nelson
Northwestern University

Wednesday November 15th 2000 at 7:00pm
College of DuPage Room SRC 2800(a,b,c)


Prof. Barry L. Nelson, Director of Northwestern University's Master of Engineering Management Program (MEM), will speak on using and managing the use of computer simulation for risk and operations analysis. He will demonstrate some popular software for spreadsheet and systems simulation, and then present basic principles for managing a simulation study.

Speaker Bio

Professor Nelson is interested in the design and analysis of computer simulation experiments, particularly issues of statistical efficiency (such as variance-reduction techniques), multivariate output analysis (such as multiple-comparison procedures and optimization via simulation) and multivariate input modeling (such as modeling and generation of time-series input processes). His application areas include computer performance modeling, quality control and manufacturing systems.

Professor Nelson teaches courses on stochastic modeling and computer simulation. He was named McCormick teacher of the year in 1998.

More information about Dr. Nelson can be obtained from his bio webpage, and more information about the MEM Program is available at its webpage.
