The venerable problem-solving technique of simulation finds itself in the midst of a revolution. Where once it was regarded as a "technique of last resort" for systems analysis, today simulation is widely applied to support myriad purposes, including: training, interaction, visualization, hardware testing and decision support in real-time. Advanced distributed simulation (ADS) is the US Department of Defense (DoD) nomenclature used to describe the cooperative utilization of physically… Expand
Building Self-Reconfiguring Distributed Simulations Using Compensating Reconfiguration
January 1999 The DoD distributed simulation domain encompasses a variety of uses, architectures, and techniques. DoD uses distributed simulation for test and evaluation, analysis, and training. EachExpand
DEVS formalism as a framework for advanced distributed simulation
TLDR
The DEVS (discrete event systems specification) formalism is reviewed and it is indicated why it provides the right framework to address many of the difficult technical issues that must be solved to enable ADS to provide infrastructures for distributed simulation. Expand
