Banks and Gibson defined Simulation as:
Simulation involves the generation of an artificial history to draw inferences concerning the operational characteristics of the real-system that is represented. Simulation is an indispensable problem-solving methodology for the solution of many real-world problems. Simulation is used to describe and analyze the behavior of a system, ask what-if questions about the real system, and aid in the design of the real system. Both existing and conceptual systems can be modeled with simulation.
