About this item

General Purpose Simulation System (GPSS) is a special computer programming language primarily used to simulate what can be classified as discrete systems. A discrete system is one where, at any given instant in time, a countable number of things can take place. The basic operation of a mine itself can be considered such a system.

Discrete Simulation and Animation for Mining Engineers explains how to model mining systems using GPSS/H® and PROOF® by Wolverine Software Corporation. Employing a unique approach that encourages engagement from the start, the text discusses animation first, and then slowly introduces simulation language. As each new topic is covered, an animation is provided to illustrate the key concepts.

Leveraging valuable insight gained from the author’s extensive experience modeling mines around the world, the book:

  • Describes how to apply discrete system simulation to mines
  • Shows how to make those simulations come alive with animation
  • Includes real-world examples and exercises that hone practical problem-solving skills

Written by a mining engineer for mining engineers and students of mining, Discrete Simulation and Animation for Mining Engineersoffers a comprehensive yet accessible treatment of mine simulation and animation useful in increasing the efficiency of industrial mining processes.

The GPSS (General Purpose Simulation System) computer programming language is a special language that is used primarily to simulate what can be classified as discrete systems. A discrete system is one where, at any given instant in time, a countable number of things can take place. The basic operation of a mine itself can be considered such a system. This book primarily focuses on "how to do" simulations in discrete system applied to mining engineering for increasing the efficiency of industrial mining processes.
