Abstract: Operating System (OS) is like the heart of a computer. Even though all the hardware is available, there is no use of a computer without an OS. Therefore learning about the components and concepts of the Operating system is very much essential and useful. Learning the concepts and teaching those concepts are not very easy. Nowadays in almost all the universities Operating System is a module which is very popular in undergraduate level. Operating System concepts have been taught to students theoretically, in which students find it very hard to understand. The concepts of OS are really hard to explain theoretically. Regardless of how good the lecturer is explaining or how good knowledge he has, it is not easily understood by the students. Therefore the need for simulators which simulates the functions of the components has aroused. Even though the lecturers are very knowledgeable in the particular area, they still find it difficult to explain all the concepts theoretically. Therefore the team has decided to develop an Operating System Simulator which will help to visualize the concepts.
