 Aims
 body { font-size: 9pt; font-family: Arial } table { font-size: 9pt; font-family: Arial } After the completion of this course, students will be able to: Explain the role of process simulation in Civil Engineering Distinguish between deterministic and stochastic modelling approaches Explain the concept of Monte Carlo Simulation Describe the principles of discrete-event simulation Use appropriate technique to extract statistical information from site measurement Apply the principles of discrete-event simulation in real project Use appropriate software and modelling methodology to translate a conceptual model to a functional simulation model Interpret the outcome of stochastic models Reflect on the outcome of the model and translate it into actionable strategies Deduce the notion of simulation-based optimization
 Content
This is a part of Module 8, Modelling & Analysis of Stochastic Processes of the Bachelor Civil Engineering. See here for the complete description of this module.

The course covers the following content:
• There will be a series of lectures that covers the topic of stochastic simulation of construction processes
• In a series of tutorials, students will learn about statistical methods, and stroboscope (i.e., the simulation software)
• Several supervised project support sessions will provide students the support during their design project
• The final exam will cover all the theory component of the course. This will be in form of one written digital exam.
