Decision Support and Voting Systems Case Study

  • Theodore T. Allen
Chapter

Abstract

This chapter describes practical information relevant to simulation projects. In general, the inspiration for system changes can come from many sources including from competitors. Also, the creativity involved with identifying alternative systems is generally critical to project success. Simulation is usually only useful for evaluating hypothetical changes. Without inspired alternatives, the value is limited. Dogmas like theory of constraints (Sect. 7.1) and lean production (Sect. 7.2) can provide the needed inspiration.
