Abstract : The information necessary to use the AUTODIN Simulator (AUSIM) in the simulation of store and forward networks is described. The input data, control cards, options and procedures required to operate the model are specified. The model was developed for use in the design and analysis of store and forward networks. It is programmed in FORTRAN IV and COBOL and designed to operate on the IBM 360 computer. The model is a steady state simulator that calculates average message delays from probability equations. The system is disk oriented and contains various data preparation and network simulation programs. The primary inputs to the model are card image files stored on disk that describe the network and traffic to be simulated. During the simulation, output records describing significant results of the simulation are stored on disk and are then processed by reports programs to produce selected reports of summary or detailed information on the simulation results.
