JASP : a simulation language for a time-shared system by A. Alan B Pritsker( Book )

5 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A combination User's Manual and Programmer's Guide is provided for JASP, a simulation language for use on the JOSS time-shared system. Written in JOSS language, JASP provides standard routines for performing functions that are common to many simulations: initialization; time and event control; information storage and retrieval; performance data collection; summary, monitoring, and error reporting; and random deviate generation. The routines for performing each of these functions are described, as well as the specially defined JOSS variables used by JASP. The JASP framework for creating a simulation model follows that used in SIMSCRIPT and GASP. Simulations of a simple queueing system and a man-machine price and inventory system are used to illustrate areas for which JASP is designed. The memorandum provides complete documentation and ready-reference for JASP statement types, part interactions, and JOSS coding. (Author)
Multiproject scheduling with limited resources : a zero-one programming approach by A. Alan B Pritsker( Book )

5 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A zero-one (0-1) linear programming formulation of multiproject and job-shop scheduling problems is presented that is more general and computationally tractable than other known formulations. It can accommodate a wide range of real-world situations including multiple resource constraints, due dates, job splitting, resource substitutability, and concurrency and nonconcurrency of job performance requirements. Three possible objective functions are discussed: minimizing total throughput time for all projects: minimizing the time by which all projects are completed (i.e., minimizing makespan); and minimizing total lateness or lateness penalty for all projects

Mathematical formulation : a problem in design by A. Alan B Pritsker( Book )

5 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relationship between formulation and design is examined. The main aspects of mathematical formulation are the development of definitions of variables and the functional relationships of the variables required to model the situation under study. There are many ways to attack these two aspects since there can be many mathematical formulations for the same problem description. The design of an efficient mathematical formulation is an activity analogous to other engineering design activities. In this paper the design aspects of mathematical formulation are discussed and an example illustrating the design considerations is presented

Use of generalized activity networks in scheduling by Stephen M Drezner( Book )

3 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 'Generalized Activity Network' model is a technique which possesses all the communication benefits associated with the PERT type networks yet permits the analysis of more complex logical relationships and feedback loops. It is an analytical tool which, when used in conjunction with a technique which estimates activity times, appears to yield a feasible method for shortrange evaluations of a given resource configuration. In thosee cases where resource availability is not an active constraint the network approach provides a mechanism for evaluating alternative schedules
GERT : graphical evaluation and review technique by A. Alan B Pritsker( Book )

An analysis of conveyor systems by A. Alan B Pritsker( Book )

3 editions published between 1964 and 1977 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Equations for the following performance measures for conveyor systems with no storage and no feedback are developed: expected number of busy channels, probability that the j(th) channel is busy, and the expected time for an item in the system when delays are included between service channels. An extension to the case where there is no storage in all but the last channel and infinite storage in the last channel is made. It is also shown that time delays between service channels do not affect the steady-state probabilities associated with the conveyor system. Tables of the performance measures are included for the queueing situations M/G/m and D/M/m applied to conveyor systems. Also tabulated are the probabilities that j channels are busy and that j channels are busy at the time of an arrival of an item for the M/G/m and D/M/m situations. It is proved that the D/M/m situation is superior to the M/G/m situation with regard to the performance measures. Recirculation ow items is then considered and an equation for the expected number of busy channels is developed. A simulation program is used to obtain the probabilities associated with the conveyor system when recirculation is permitted. It is observed that the value of the feedback delay does not affect the steady-state probabilities. (Author)
