Being faster is good. Being predictable is better. A faithful model of a system, loaded to reflect the actual system’s state at a given point in time, can then be used to look into the future and predict performance. Building faithful models of processes with high degrees of uncertainty can be very challenging, especially where this uncertainty exists both in terms of processing times, and queuing behavior. The author will discuss the potential benefits of using a discrete event simulation to quote due dates in a business process/work flow environment.
