An Example of Business Process Simulation Using ARENA

Joseph Barjis

Abstract

In this paper a modelling methodology for business systems simulation is introduced. The methodology is based on the business transaction concept in conjunction with Petri nets notations. Next to these two components, the Arena simulation package is discussed to build an animated simulation model. Since the simulation model will be demonstrated using the software, it is not included into this paper, but it is shown how to use AREAN elements.
