simmer: Discrete-Event Simulation for R

A process-oriented and trajectory-based Discrete-Event Simulation (DES) package for R. Designed to be a generic framework like SimPy or SimJulia, it leverages the power of Rcpp to boost the performance and turning DES in R feasible. As a noteworthy characteristic, simmer exploits the concept of trajectory: a common path in the simulation model for entities of the same type. It is pretty flexible and simple to use, and leverages the chaining/piping workflow introduced by the magrittr package.

This method initialises a simulation environment.

Usage
simmer(name = "anonymous", verbose = FALSE)
Arguments
name

the name of the simulator.

verbose

enable showing activity information.

Value

Returns a simulation environment.
