Abstract

The paper presents methods and tools for building computer simulation models for supporting decision-making activities. The cultivation of energy crops for biomass production is a continuous process in which delays are very important along with other factors the values of which may denote a function of many parameters. The harvest of energy plants is a discrete process, so the simulation must combine both of these processes. The paper presents the method of constructing a model for growing energy crops and interprets conclusions resulting from the operation of the model, for changing values of the decision parameters.
