  • The simmer package brings discrete-event simulation to R. It is designed as a generic yet powerful process-oriented framework. The architecture encloses a robust and fast simulation core written in C++ with automatic monitoring capabilities. It provides a richand flexible R API that revolves around the concept of trajectory, a common path in the simulation model for entities of the same type.
