Definitions Edit Simulation is “ [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. ” References Edit ↑ Adult Literacy and New Technologies: Tools for a Lifetime, at 254. ↑ FFIEC IT Examination Handbook, Business Continuity Planning, Appendix B: Glossary (full-text). ↑ DOD Directive 5000.59 (Aug. 8, 2007) (full-text). ↑ DHS Risk Lexicon, at 34.
