GPSS World

Our premier simulation product, GPSS World, is based on the seminal language of computer simulation, GPSS, which stands for General Purpose Simulation System. This language was developed primarily by Geoffrey Gordon at IBM around 1960, and has contributed important concepts to every commercial discrete event Computer Simulation Language developed ever since. GPSS World is a direct descendent of GPSS/PC, an early implementation of GPSS for personal computers. Since it’s introduction in 1984, GPSS/PC and its successors have saved thousands of users millions of dollars. GPSS World is the worthy descendent of these early simulation environments. GPSS World is designed to deliver answers quickly and reliably, with the least effort, achieving the highest reliability of results. Consistent with these objectives, visualization of running simulations is highly stylized and a default statistical treatment is built in. This approach means that animations are ”free” requiring no additional effort to produce, but are not photo-realistic. GPSS World’s forte is transparency, not photo-realism. Third party animation systems are available which can provide pictorial animations based on GPSS World simulations. GPSS World was designed primarily to deliver quality answers while maintaining a high level of transparency and controllability. Further, GPSS World facilitates the statistical analysis required of any serious simulation project. In summary, it is a self contained environment with everything from built-in probability distributions to automatic experiment generation, for screening as well as for optimization.
