Appropriate analysis of simulation output is important to the success of a simulation study. Many users, however, do not have the skills required to perform such analyses. One way of overcoming this problem is to provide automated tools for analyzing simulation output. An Excel based automated "Analyser" is described that performs an analysis of a single scenario. The Analyser links to a commercial simulation software package, SIMUL8, and provides recommendations on warm-up, number of replications and run-length. Various standard procedures are used in the Analyser with some adaptations to make them suitable for automation. This research demonstrates the potential of the approach. A requirement for further development is more thorough testing of the analysis procedures, particularly for their robustness and generality in use. Further adaptation of the procedures for automation may also be required.
