Total marks: --
Total time: --
(1) Assume appropriate data and state your reasons
(2) Marks are given to the right of every question
(3) Draw neat diagrams wherever necessary
1 (a) List any five circumstances, when the simulation is the appropriate tool and when it is not. 10 marks

1 (b) Explain the steps in simulation study, with the flow chart. 10 marks

2 (a) Explain the following:
i) System
ii) Event list
iii) Entity
iv) Event.
10 marks

Write the flow chart with respect to single channel queue:

2 (b) (i) Execution of the arrival event. 10 marks

2 (b) (ii) Execution of the departure event. 10 marks

2 (c) One company uses 6 trucks of haul manganese ore from kolar to its industry. There are two loaders, to load each truck. After loading, a truck moves to the weighing scale to be weighted. The queue discipline is FIFO. When it is weighed, a truck travels to the industry and returns to the loader queue. The distribution of loading time, weighing time and travel time are as follows:
Depict the simulation table and estimate the loader and scale utilization. Assume 5 trucks are at the loaders and one is at the scale, at time'0'. Stopping time TE=76 min.

Loading time: 10 5 5 10 15 10 10
Weigh time: 12 12 12 16 12 16  
Travel time: 60 100 40 40 80    
10 marks
