D Miscellaneous Topics in Arena

This appendix covers a number of miscellaneous topics that may be useful when using Arena as your primary simulation modeling environment. The appendix starts with presenting an overview of how to get help in Arena and on utilizing the Arena Run Controller. In addition, the appendix overviews some of the programming aspects of using the Arena modeling environment. The appendix also covers the topic of resource and entity costing within the context of Arena’s activity based costing constructs. I have attempted to order the topics in this appendix based on their usefulness within my use of Arena. The next section presents probably the most useful topic: how to get help.
