Abstract

The pros and cons of using simulation during the design phase of machine development are discussed. An approach using two levels of simulation models to investigate proposed machine performance is illustrated by a case study of a parallel processor machine. It is argued that the approach alleviates some of the liabilities traditionally encountered in machine simulation, and that it is a cost-effective method of design analysis.
