The Analyst will gather information, then select the most appropriate analytical technique.  Analysts can use any of several techniques, including simulation, linear and nonlinear programming, dynamic programming, queuing and other stochastic-process models, and the analytic hierarchy process.  Most techniques involve the construction of mathematical models that attempt to describe the system being studied.  The use of models will enable the Analyst to assign values to the different components and clarify the relationships among them.  The values can be altered to examine what may happen to the system under different circumstances.
