The ®eld of advanced distributed simulation (ADS) has emerged and evolved since the 1980s. Developments are driven largely from within the United States (US) Department of Defense (DoD). This paper summarizes the history and evolution of ADS, detailing recent developments, notably the high level architecture (HLA). The implications of the HLA for data(More)
With increasing globalisation of software production, widespread use of software components, and the need to maintain software systems over long periods of time, there has been a recognition that better support for collaborative working is needed by software engineers. In this paper, two approaches to developing improved system support for collaborative(More)
This project is concerned with the development of a distributed , multiuser Internet based simulation environment for automated factories, written in Java. The motivating factor behind the work described is the rapid development in computer controlled automated production lines, which has led to increasing complexity of scheduling of these systems. To avoid(More)
Simulation, in several forms, is used extensively in present day circuit design. The various forms of simulation can be categorized in terms of level of detail offered, ranging from circuit level (transistors, capacitors, etc.) to timing level (e.g., MOTIS(I» t o logic gate level (NAND, NOR, etc.) to register transfer level. As with a microscope, increasing(More)
This paper describes the notion of event-driven metrics as an alternative to generating metrics from software project artefacts on-demand or periodically. The rationale for wanting such an alternative stems from on-demand metric updates being prone to human error and for potentially missing important project events and trends. Furthermore, periodic updates,(More)
