General Purpose Simulation with STROBOSCOPE


Stroboscope is a programming language designed for the simulation of processes common to construction engineering. These processes are very complex and involve many different types of resources. As a result, Stroboscope is also an efficient and effective general purpose simulation system. This paper presents an overview of Stroboscope and illustrates how it can be used to model a complex example taken from classic simulation literature (Airplane Service Facility).
