SEED Center for Data Farming
Operations Research Department

The mission of the Simulation Experiments and Efficient Designs (SEED) Center for Data Farming is to advance the collaborative development and use of simulation experiments and efficient designs to provide decision makers with timely insights on complex systems and operations. The SEED approach has been to advance the state-of-the-art in conducting large-scale simulation studies, by developing and disseminating experimental designs that facilitate the exploration of complex simulation models.

The SEED philosophy is that there are three basic goals for simulation experiments:

  • developing a basic understanding of a particular simulation model or system,
  • identifying robust decisions or policies, and
  • comparing the merits of alternative decisions or policies.
