Abstract

This project aims at developing an simulation-based educational software for enhancing performance in teaching and learning purpose. Simulation software has been widely used as a teaching tool in recent years due to the positive effects it brings to students. Pen-and-paper teaching method has been pulled out from learning culture. Students are encouraged to learn in an integrative environment and to motivate by themselves. This project comprises of all the management issues starting from the beginning till the evaluation of this project. It would bring readers to walk through the critical milestones in the construction of the proposed simulation package, SimWarehouse™.
