Abstract
This report, Volume 11 of the 11-volume report on the master design simulator (MDS), describes the total systems application as an integrated simulator of an entire underground coal mining system. A discussion of subsystem organization and development is presented, along with execution instructions for various computers, simulation techniques and limitations, and a case study based on data from a coal mine in West Virginia. The case study illustrates the use of both the interactive or dynamic subsystems and the event-oriented subsystems, and provides information necessary to link the subsystems together. The appendices constitute a user's manual for the linked subsystems and a complete program listing.
