Thoughts on simulation project management

is part of every decision we make. We are constantly faced with uncertainty, ambiguity, and variability. And even though we have unprecedented access to information, we can’t accurately predict the future. Monte Carlo simulation lets you see all the possible outcomes of your decisions and assess the impact of risk, allowing for better decision making under uncertainty. What is Monte Carlo simulation? Monte Carlo simulation is a computerized mathematical technique that allows people to account for risk in quantitative analysis and decision making. The technique is used by professionals in such widely disparate fields as ...
The principle of the game is that while each player prefers not to yield to the other, the outcome where neither player yields is the worst possible one for both players. The name "Chicken" has its origins in a game in which two drivers drive towards each other on a collision course: one must swerve, or both may die in the crash, but if one driver swerves and the other does not, the one who swerved will be called a "chicken," meaning a coward; this terminology is most prevalent in political science and economics . The name "Hawk-Dove" refers to a situation in which there is a competition for a ...

The reel, resume and contact resource for Eddie Offermann, Pipeline TD, Visual Effects Scripter, CG VFX and Integration Artist I've been working on the spec for Big Blue Ceiling and thought I'd share at least an introduction to what the project will deliver. I've changed jobs recently (still in the vfx software/pipeline/td world) and that, among other things, has interrupted the project a bit but I'm ramping back up on it now. Below are some thoughts on what a pipeline is and how I envision Big Blue Ceiling.  There is so much more to say, but much of it will have to remain unsaid until the project is closer ... market research, surveys and trends
Thoughts for CIOs: Why Forced Subcontracting Is Flawed
often want to break up the contract into smaller pieces and bid them out separately.  The thinking is that by introducing more vendors into the mix, you can increase competition and put pressure on vendors to come in at competitive prices.  However, to avoid the headaches of managing many vendors, CIOs  are often tempted to bid out to one lead contractor to manage the program and force the lead contractor to subcontract implementation to other vendors.  One of my colleagues, who happens to be a brilliant lawyer, explained to me why this thinking is flawed. To begin with, a contract with the ... market research, surveys and trends

A Project Management Approach to Using Simulation for Cost ...
An engineering manager can use this article to develop an approach to estimating cost and scheduling for large, complex software development projects that considers the inherent difficulties of developing accurate estimates for such projects. None of the approaches or tools available today can estimate the true cost of software with any high degree of accuracy early in a project. This article provides an approach that uses a software development process simulation model that considers and conveys the level of uncertainty that exists when developing an initial estimate. A NASA project will be analyzed using simulation and data ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Tao Lin: Literary phenomenon for the Internet age
Tao Lin is the next big thing in urban hipster lit. At least, so say the people that read his books on the subway. "That guy is the next big thing," announced one last fall to a stranger eyeing his book. "People just don't know it yet." The book he showed off was "Shoplifting From American Apparel," the novella by 26-year-old Brooklyn, N.Y., author Tao Lin. Of course this exchange happened on the L train, which moves through the heart of hipster Brooklyn, and of course the guy was wearing Converse Chucks, skinny jeans and a tight flannel shirt with the sleeves rolled up. He looked about 27. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Slashdot | Open Source Engineering Tools?
"It seems to be the case that most open source projects fall into the software development, business, and desktop realms. I have done a bit of unfruitful searching for good FOSS engineering tools. By this I mean: 3D CAD/CAM, FEA, fluids, and math simulation tools. I have been able to find various 'academic quality' FEA, fluids, and math sim tools; those are, however, not sufficient for even hobby-level production work because they: have a lacking interface; don't have a standard file formats; and are not standalone products (i.e., they require Matlab or some other expensive package). If you were going to set ...
