FACT: A fusion architecture with contract templates for semantic and syntactic integration
Linking components with end-user requests for processing is problematic when there are fundamental language differences between component specifications and how individual users state their needs. Appropriate components may not exist, the users may not know if a component exists until a one matching their requirements is generated, or the users may adjust their requirements. For complex systems governed by a community of interest, we introduce a Fusion Architecture coupled with Contract Templates (FACT). The Fusion Architecture assists with syntactic and semantic unification of user directives. Contract Templates provide a standardized mechanism to collect heterogeneous systems within domains of interest. Based upon specific analysis of each component, Contract Templates attach connectors to generate integrated systems to which queries can be directed. A case study demonstrates how FACT enables military analysts to direct the use of simulation software for the experimentation of comma...
