  • SIMPAS is a portable, strongly-typed, event-oriented, discrete system simulation language based on PASCAL. It has most of the useful features of SIMSCRIPT II.5. However, because of the type checking inherent in SIMPAS, a SIMPAS program is easier to debug and maintain than the corresponding SIMSCRIPT II.5 program. This paper briefly describes SIMPAS and discusses the advantages of using SIMPAS instead of SIMSCRIPT II.5 for the rapid construction of reliable simulation programs.
