Scope and Content Note

Professional papers of Julian Reitman documenting his work in the field of simulation. This collection consists mainly of budget reports and conference proceedings digests from Winter Simulation Conferences, 1968-1998. Additionally there are technical reprints and operational manuals used by Reitman when he was employed by the Norden Division of United Aircraft Corporation.

Biographical Note

Julian Reitman was among the first to recognize the value of a "high-level" modeling approach to solving complex systems problems. Reitman was the leader of one of the first simulation application groups in industry at the Norden Division of United Aircraft Corporation. They created numerous simulation models of real systems including naval vessel performance, anti-submarine warfare, effectiveness of airborne radar, railed automated highways, air traffic control, message switching in communications, and yield prediction for integrated circuit production.

Reitman was one of the founders of the Winter Simulation Conference (WSC) and has served in active leadership of the WSC since it originated in 1968. Reitman wrote one of the first simulation textbooks, Computer Simulation Applications: Discrete Event Simulation for Synthesis and Analysis of Complex Systems (1971).
