Transforming conceptual models of the mission space into simulation space models

Küçükyavuz, Fatih
Helping to abstract a valid model from real system, conceptual modeling is an essential phase in simulation development lifecycle. With the development of the KAMA framework, a new methodology was presented to develop mission space conceptual model for simulation systems. It provides metamodel elements represented by graphical diagrams to develop conceptual models of mission space. BOM (Base Object Model), developed by SISO (Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization), is another conceptual modeling concept serving for simulation space. KAMA models are very close to problem domain and intend to model real world concepts in requirement analysis and development phase. Whereas, being vital inputs for the simulation design phase, BOM models are closer to solution domain. Hence there is no defined way of using the captured mission space knowledge in simulation space, problem arises when moving from requirement analysis to design phase. In this study, to solve this problem, we propose a method for transforming mission space conceptual models in simulation space. Our solution approach will be mapping the KAMA mission space models to BOM simulation space models for automatically transport real world analysis results to simulation designers.


A study on conceptual modeling in simulation systems : an extended methodology for KAMA
Aysolmaz Bozlu, Banu E; Demirörs, Onur; Department of Information Systems (2007)
Conceptual modeling is considered to be essential in simulation development activities. However, there are only a few research studies on how to develop conceptual models. One of the important and comprehensive approaches is the methodology developed under the leadership of METU Modeling and Simulation Center (MODSIMMER) for Turkish Armed Forces. The project suggests a methodology to develop mission space conceptual models (GUKAM), and provides a Conceptual Model Development Tool for C4ISR M&S activities, w...
A Method for Facilitating 4D Modeling by Automating Task Information Generation and Mapping
Altun, Murat; Akçamete Güngör, Aslı (2018-10-04)
4D modeling integrates 3D model with project time schedule to provide virtual simulation for identifying spatio-temporal problems earlier in construction projects. However, constructing a 4D model takes a significant amount of time and is prone to man-made errors due to its manual steps and repetitive nature. Therefore, in this study, a model based two-phase method is developed to facilitate linking 3D model with the schedule by automating the cumbersome steps. In the first phase, 4D Task IDs are created an...
Transforming mission space models to executable simulation models
Özhan, Gürkan; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S.; Department of Computer Engineering (2011)
This thesis presents a two step automatic transformation of Field Artillery Mission Space Conceptual Models (ACMs) into High Level Architecture (HLA) Federation Architecture Models (FAMs) into executable distributed simulation code. The approach followed in the course of this thesis adheres to the Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) philosophy. Both ACMs and FAMs are formally defined conforming to their metamodels, ACMM and FAMM, respectively. ACMM is comprised of a behavioral component, based on Live Sequence C...

The symmetries and associated conservation laws of the SO(2,1) invariant non-linear sigma model equations in 1+1 dimensions are investigated. An infinite family of generalized local symmetries is presented and the uniqueness of these solutions is discussed.
Transformation of conceptual models to executable High Level Architecture federation models
Özhan, Gürkan; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S. (Springer, 2015-01-01)
In this chapter, we present a formal, declarative, and visual model transformation methodology to map a domain conceptual model (CM) to a distributed simulation architecture model (DSAM). The approach adheres to the principles of model-driven engineering (MDE). A two-phased automatic transformation strategy is delineated to translate a field artillery conceptual model (ACM) into a high-level architecture (HLA) federation architecture model (FAM). The produced model is then compiled by the code generator to ...
