Simulation and 3D Animation Course Presentation

The course begins to explain the modelling method as one of the most important methods of scientific work. Based on commercial simulation systems (GPSS/H and SLX) and animation systems (Proof Animation SP5 und SP3D) the students will gain theoretical insight and practical experience. The main emphasis is on discrete event simulation and 3D animation. Please read more about the intention and the content of this course clicking here.

Thomas Fliess/ KC Ritter (1994):
Damaschkeplatz Magdeburg
Magdeburg's Damaschkeplatz is a very busy traffic node. Three lanes are merged to one.
Can the congestion be reduced if the vehicles are allowed
to use the tramway lane when it is free?
Steffen Masik (1999):
Amusement Park
The Amusement Park is an example of a queueing network.
Visitors come from different sources and select different service stations.
If all stations are busy the visitors leave the park using different exits.

Until 2008 the course has been presented 2D Animation. From 2009 the 3D animation becomes a central aspect of the course. A short introduction to Proof3D, the tool used during this course, is available here.


The content of the course is presentated almost completely in a Web based textbook. Students are recommended to read the Syllabus. It contains the conditions for getting an attestation or for preparing the examination.

Two Assignments have to be executed during the course. The assignments are almost invented by the students. A selection of best solutions from former years can be found in Magdeburg's Animation Gallery.
