The Simscript II programming language by Philip J Kiviat( Book )
19 editions published between 1968 and 1973 in English and held by 319 libraries worldwide
A user's and programmer's manual for SIMSCRIPT II that requires only a basic knowledge of computers and programming language translators (compilers). Sections that are unusually difficult or contain features of limited use are marked with an asterisk. The manual is divided into five chapters, corresponding to five language 'levels.' Level 1 is a teaching language designed to introduce programming concepts to nonprogrammers. Level 2 is a language roughly comparable in power to FORTRAN, but departs from it in specific features. Level 3 is comparable in power to ALGOL or PL/I, but with specific differences, and contains information on the new ALPHA mode for alpha-numeric manipulations, on writing formatted reports, and on internal editing. Level 4 contains the entity-attribute-set features of SIMSCRIPT, which have been up- dated and augmented to provide a more powerful list-processing capability. Level 5, the simulation-oriented part of SIMSCRIPT II, contains statements for time advance, event and activity processing, generation of statistical variates, and accumulation and analysis of simulation-generated data. Two new debugging routines, BEFORE and AFTER, enable the monitoring of six complex processes

Harry Markowitz : selected works by H Markowitz( Book )
21 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 102 libraries worldwide
Harry M Markowitz received the Nobel Prize in Economics in 1990 for his pioneering work in portfolio theory. He also received the von Neumann Prize from the Institute of Management Science and the Operations Research Institute of America in 1989 for his work in portfolio theory, sparse matrices and the SIMSCRIPT computer language. While Dr Markowitz is well-known for his work on portfolio theory, his work on sparse matrices remains an essential part of linear optimization calculations. In addition, he designed and developed SIMSCRIPT - a computer programming language. SIMSCRIPT has been widely used for simulations of systems such as air transportation and communication networks. This book consists of a collection of Dr Markowitz's most important works in these and other fields

Programming by questionnaire : how to construct a program generator by Paula M Oldfather( Book )
6 editions published between 1965 and 1966 in English and held by 46 libraries worldwide
The approach is to present the user with a set of possible options, expressed in an English language questionnaire. By choosing from these options, the user specifies all the information necessary to construct his desired computer program. A 'Generator' program, informed of the selected options, then constructs the desired program and specifies the data that the user must supply in order to execute the generated program. The components of the Generator program are: (1) A 'Statement List' that includes all the commands which may be needed in the construction of any of the programs. (2) A set of 'Decision Tables' that specify which commands are to be included in the generated program, based on the choices selected from the Questionnaire. (3) An 'Editor' that processes the Questionnaire, Statement List, and Decision Tables. The mechanics of the program generation process are discussed in terms of an illustrative Job Shop Simulator Program Generator (JSSPG)

Risk and lack of diversification under employee ownership and shared capitalism by Joseph R Blasi( Book )
7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 14 libraries worldwide
Some analysts view risk as the Achilles Heel of employee ownership and to some extent variable pay plans such as profit sharing and gainsharing. Workers in such "shared capitalist" firms may invest too much of their wealth in the firm, contrary to the principle of diversification. This paper addresses whether the risk in shared capitalism makes it unwise for most workers or whether the risk can be managed to limit much of the loss of utility from holding the extra risk. We create an index of financial security based on worker pay and wealth, and find that workers who feel financially insecure exhibit fewer of the positive outcomes associated with shared capitalism, and are less interested than other workers in receiving more employee ownership or even more profit sharing in their workplaces. This response is substantially lessened, however, when accounting for worker empowerment, good employee relations, and high-performance work bundles that appear to buffer worker response toward risk and increase interest in shared capitalism plans. We also discuss portfolio theory which suggests that any risky investment -- including stock in one's company -- can be part of an efficient portfolio as long as the overall portfolio is properly diversified. We show that given estimates of risk aversion parameters, workers could prudently hold reasonable proportions of their assets in employee stock ownership of their firm with only a modest loss in utility due to risk. A good strategy for firms is to personalize individual portfolios on the basis of worker characteristics and preferences, developing investment strategies that would diversify each worker's entire portfolio in ways consistent with individual risk preferences
Modify and restart routines for SIMSCRIPT games and simulation experiments by H Markowitz( Book )
2 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 14 libraries worldwide
A presentation of routines to be used with any SIMSCRIPT simulation program. They provide snapshot, modify, and restart capabilities for the following game and experiment applications: (1) man/machine games in which the computer simulates a system for a period of time, humans then use the results to decide on changes in policy parameters for the following period, and the computer resumes simulations where it left off but with policy parameters modified; and (2) simulation experiments in which snapshots of the simulated system are recorded on tape at various points in time. After inspecting the periodic and summary print-outs produced by the simulation, an analyst may specify a return to some snapshot, modify one or more parameters, and resume simulation at that point. While this revised simulation is running, additional snapshots may be taken so that the process can be repeated. (Author)
A brief review of Simscript as a simulating technique by Murray A Geisler( Book )
3 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
The role of simulation is described and the underlying concepts and structure of SIMSCRIPT by a specific example of a simple job shop routine are presented. The key to developing a more rigorous approach to simulation is to have a SIMSCRIPT view of the world in terms of events, sets, and entities. SIMCRIPT is a way of design ing and writing down a simulation model, and has been developed with the following objectives: (1) to produce a generalized structure for de signing simulation models; (2) to provide a rapid way of converting a simulation model into a com puter program; (3) to provide a rapid way of mking changes in the simulation model which can be readily reflected in the machine program; and (4) to provide a flexible way of obtaining use ful outputs for analysis. The method is not only an abridged language, but also a structur the help of which a wide class of management problems can be programmed to a computer. It is so designed that whole areas of a problem can be changed without reprogramming the entire model. SIMSCRIPT streamlines programming and makes it faster and more economical to use. (Author)
