1.Define visual simulation and compare it to conventional simulation.
Visual simulation uses graphical representation to show the situation to the end user. It does everything a conventional simulation does, which is any technique for conducting experiments (such as what-if analyses) with a digital computer on a model of a management system, but does it using visually pleasing and informative representation.
Visual interactive simulation is a type of visual simulation in which input is provided directly to the visual representation of the system, with results visible immediately or nearly so.
2.Describe the features of VIS (i.e., VIM) that make it attractive for decision makers.
The main attraction of VIS (VIM) is the graphical display. This type of interaction can help managers learn about the decision making situation, though some people respond to graphical displays better than others. Non-technical managers, who may not understand a situation from data in tables or graphs, can grasp what goes on in a visual presentation easily.
