Cost: a Component-oriented Discrete Event Simulator

  title={Cost: a Component-oriented Discrete Event Simulator},
  author={Jane L. Snowdon and John M. Charnes},
COST (Component-Oriented Simulation Toolkit) is a general-purpose discrete event simulator. The main design purpose of COST is to maximize the reusability of simulation models without losing efficiency. To achieve this goal, COST adopts a component-based simulation worldview based on a component-port model. A simulation is built by configuring and connecting a number of components, either off-the-shelf or fully customized. Components interact with each other only via input and output ports… CONTINUE READING
