Model generation issues in a simulation support environment
This paper provides an overview of a simulation support environment and presents a discussion of a number of issues related to the generation of a simulation model. The need for automated, computer-based assistance in the generation of simulation models of large, complex systems is undeniable. The required support goes beyond the programming process and extends to all phases of the simulation model development life cycle. In the last several years, we have been developing a domain-independent simulation support environment with four layers on a Sun computer workstation. The software tools of the environment are briefly described. The most challenging tool of the environment has been the Model Generator; the tool with which a modeler creates a simulation model specification under a conceptual framework. Our experience and a discussion of issues in developing the Model Generator software tool are presented.
