By the end of this project, you will learn gain introductiory knowledge of Discrete Event Simulation, use R Studio and Simmer library, create statistical variables required for simulation, define process trajectory, define and assign resources, define arrivals (eg. incoming customers / work units), run simulation in R, store results in data frames, plot charts and interpret the results.


Familiary with RStudio is beneficial, not required.
