Simio is an object-oriented (OO), general-purpose modeling tool that can be applied in abroad set of applications including manufacturing, transportation, logistics, healthcare, and communication networks. Simio includes a comprehensive tool set for building models, providing 3D animation, verifying and validating the model, experimenting and optimizing results, and real-time planning and scheduling. In this chapter, we describe the general purpose modeling features and capabilities of Simio but, where appropriate, describe these concepts as they relate to modeling of communication networks.
