Simulation Model building is essentially
visual programming activity using "drag, drop
and connect" the icons. Basically a flow chart
is built using the ExtendSim blocks to represent the
flow of information or flow of entities through the
system or both.
Training program helps to sharpen
the thinking processes of the participants by way
of causality analysis, root cause analysis etc and
debugging skills while accelerating the learning process
of ExtendSim tool's functionalities towards problem
solving. This in effect provides a jump start to model
building skills which participants can actually perceive..
Hence participants may be enthused to deliver results
in days, instead of in months.
There are a few conceptualization
skills the participants need to acquire. Instructor
led training imparts such skills rapidly, ultimately
gaining problem solving skills. Participants do learn
while practically building the model by means of "Goal
Based Learning System" and "Hands on"
approach. Because of this approach, absorption and
retention rates are high and the participants would
accumulate actionable knowledge.
