Anyone should have realized that disadvantages would combine as readily as advantages. To be sure, combined simulation did-to the extent allowed by the interface equipment-permit the speed of the analog to be combined with the precision of the digital computers. But the low accuracy of the analog computer also combined with the relatively slow speed of the digital. It was only through clever programming to alleviate these problems that combined simulation survived. Now we have hybrid simulation, which is in want of a generally accepted definition.

Many tests which would destroy human life or expensive hardware can be run with impunity on the simulated system. The ability to return to initial conditions if a simulated patient " dies ')or a plant " blows up " is clearly impossible in real life. And of course there are important systems which are not amenable to arbitrarily controlled experimentation, the national economy and the weather, for instance. Yet these unwieldy and complex systems are currently being simulated in some detail, and with a satisfactory degree of success, by using the empirical procedures described.
