[William R Killingsworth; Business Expert Press.] -- Almost everything made today is manufactured by large networks of companies. Hundreds, if not thousands, of companies provide components, subassemblies, and major assemblies to a final manufacturer. Modeling and simulation plays a particularly important role in the development of these systems, since it is one of the most cost effective tools available for their design and analysis. In many cases, the use of models or simulations is the only way to make sound engineering judgements about new process concepts due to the massive scales involved.
