Abstract—This paper investigates the potential of discrete event simulation for the analysis and evaluation of public strategies and policies and discusses the opportunities offered by the use of a simulation project lifecycle. Following this cycle, we evaluate a public policy use case, the voluntary departure operation initiated in Morocco in 2005, and analyses the success rate of this operation, as well as its impact on the Moroccan pension fund, and this for the period from 2005 to 2025. The results of this simulation highlighted, as already indicated in the Court of Auditors' reports, the irrelevance of this operation, particularly from a financial point of view.

Index Terms—Discrete event simulation, lifecycle, voluntary departure, simulation, smart DLC, simulation project lifecycle, smart data lifecycle, strategy and public policy
