Specifying Simulation Stop Condition
To enable optimization, you must ensure that each simulation ends. By
default, a simulation never ends; therefore the optimization engine
gets no samples of the objective function. To ensure that each
simulation ends, you must specify a simulation stop condition.
Note that a simulation may involve several replications. A sample of
the objective function is the result of a simulation/iteration rather
In general, a simulation stop condition should be specified
in such a
way that the value of the objective function is significant when
simulation stops. The model should be stable, transient processes
should be finished, and statistics should be representative.
The most common and simple simulation stop conditions is stopping
at the specified model time.
