Job Account: Computer Simulation of Steroid Production
MetadataShow full item record
The report that follows the introduction includes a copy of the production simulation program that resulted from my work. Although it was never run using the real steroid network because of changes necessary in Mr. Kraska's program which supplies the data for my program, it has; run successfully on a small model network created by myself. How the program works amid the output it produces are also explained in the report. The program, as it stands, is a beginning for further study of the time element in the actual system of production. More demand and split rules will be made to approximate different situations. Long-range plans for the simulations.include an evaluation of the efficiency of different split situations and hopefully, the development of criteria for determining the best way to handle production at nodes where splits occur. My project is a small part'· of the total project to represent steroid production systematically and coordinate production throughout the system.
