Simulation models are integral to modern scientific research, national defense, industry and manufacturing, and public policy debates. These models tend to be extremely complex, often with thousands of factors and many sources of uncertainty. To understand the impact these factors and their interactions have on model outcomes requires efficient, highdimensional design of experiments. All too often, many largescale simulation models are explored in ad hoc ways. This suggests that more simulation researchers and practitioners need to be aware of the power of experimental design in order to get the most from their simulation studies. In this tutorial, we demonstrate the basic concepts important for designing and conducting simulation experiments, and provide references to various resources for those wishing to learn more. This tutorial will prepare you to make effective use of designed experimentation in your next simulation study.
