One of the best developed ways to predict how changing inputs to a complex system will change its probable outputs is to simulate the behavior of the system. Modern simulation modeling software environments (such as MATLAB/SIMULINK®, or STELLA/ITHINK® for continuous simulation, and SIMUL8® for discrete-event simulation) make the mechanics of simulation model building and use relatively straightforward. Stochastic simulation risk models have been developed for business, engineering, biological, social, and economic systems. (Agent-based simulation models have also been developed for complex social and economic systems, but this chapter focuses on continuous simulation.)
