This paper is to show the general explanations about simulation and its importance in the modern world. This paper also shows us how the process of simulation is working step by step so it gives us the clear algorithm to apply simulation methods of any problem. It also defines the most important keywords which related to simulation methods. Moreover, in this paper, we explore the history of simulation and its developing and how it becomes one of the most widely using in the world in many fields. The importance of this research is to give us the general review about Simulation and how it is working on solving the problems. Furthermore, this paper shows how the operation of Simulation working step by step and how to apply them to act the real problem in a simulated one. The importance of this paper is also coming by reviewing the history of Simulation from its first use until now so it can be one of the best theoretical references for the researchers who interested in Simulation.
