The integration and interoperation among heterogeneous distributed models is an important technique to realise distributed collaborative simulation for complex product development. HLA and web service technology are employed to facilitate the integration in this paper. First, the HLA-enabling method based on HLA agent model is proposed to make models created through commercial software conforming to HLA standard. In order to make up the drawbacks of HLA based simulation in interoperability on…
