Simulation - Some Advice
nilakantan, Teacher, India, Member
You can start with any book on management science - Anderson or Hillier or Stevenson and read the chapter on 'simulation' to get the basics. Then migrate to any book exclusively devoted to simulation. These books give you some idea of the sources and the software available. First you should try simulation on a spreadsheet and next you may try some of the standard simulation softwares available in the market.
Hope this will be of some use.
