Term2.png SIMULATION
Methodology that consists in the imitation of a real system or process with the objective of exploring it and of understanding the interrelationships among its components, before implementing it in the real world. Simulation creates the appearance of being real, giving the experience of a real situation, without risks, since there is no consequence for the actions and everything can be undone and redone as many time as needed. With this methodology it is possible to provide an immersive learning experience that allows to compress the time and remove extraneous details. The learning occurs by studying the effects of change on one or more factors of the model. [1] See also: Simulation-Based Training, Role Play.
