Simulation - autumn 2017

The Simulation course is given in Autumn 2017 (starting on October 24th). See Korppi for details. The lectures are in English and will hopefully be at least partially updated from the previous instances. However, as a back up, the materials from the previous instance are also available. (The previous instance contains links to older versions (2012 in Finnish) as well).


The course will include exercises that require operating with some simulation packages/libraries (like JavaSim, JaamSim, OES, SimPy or Desmo-J, see below). The exercises are preferably to be done in small groups (2-3 persons). Slides and stream capture videos are provided (assuming that the recorder stays stable)).
