Neutral representation for simulation constructs

Keywords and Phrases

System of systems (SoS)


"The proposed modeling approaches aim to help generate distributed simulation constructs that can be ported among multiple software systems using a neutral format XML representation. Since the system being modeled is comprised of various independent sub-systems, a system-of-systems (SoS) approach is employed. A manufacturing cell is exploited as a simple example to outline the object model and components diagrams. XML representations are constructed based on the object and component models. The models will be used as part of modeling approaches to create simulation constructs that assist interoperatibility of distributed simulation model among multiple software design environments"--Abstract, page iv.
