|“||[s]oftware that enables the user to experience a realistic reproduction of an actual situation. Computer-based simulations often involve situations that are very costly or high risk (e.g., flight simulation training for pilots).||”|
|“||[t]he process of operating a model of an enterprise-wide or business line activity in order to test the functionality of the model. Computer systems may support the simulation of business models to aid in evaluating the BCP.||”|
|“||[is] a method for implementing a model over time. Also, a technique for testing, analysis, or training in which real-world systems are used, or where real-world and conceptual systems are reproduced by a model.||”|
|“||[a] model that behaves or operates like a given process, concept, or system when provided a set of controlled inputs.||”|
