Scenarios play an important role in planning, engineering and executing a distributed simulation environment. During the simulation environment engineering process the operational scenarios provided by the user are refined into one or more conceptual scenarios and finally executable scenarios are derived which are used for initializing and stimulating participating simulation systems and other member applications. Conceptual scenarios provide the linking elements between operational scenarios and executable scenarios. Although complete and precise specification of conceptual scenarios is of crucial importance for the whole simulation environment engineering process, we find very little (if at all) guidance on how to specify and document conceptual scenarios. This paper presents how the Base Object Model (BOM) standard may be utilized for specifying conceptual scenarios. We demonstrate the applicability of the BOM standard for a fictitious air defense scenario. To set the stage, firstly, we give an overview about scenarios in military simulation environments and their place in the simulation environment engineering process. Secondly, the main part of this paper presents the example scenario as a case study for utilizing the BOM standard for specification of conceptual scenarios.


An integrated scheduling and control model for multi-mode projects
Hazır, Öncü; Schmidt, Klaus Verner (2013-01-01)
In today's highly competitive uncertain project environments, it is of crucial importance to develop analytical models and algorithms to schedule and control project activities so that the deviations from the project objectives are minimized. This paper addresses the integrated scheduling and control in multi-mode project environments. We propose an optimization model that models the dynamic behavior of projects and integrates optimal control into a practically relevant project scheduling problem. From the ...
Design and implementation of shared memory and hybrid communication models for portico RTI
Özen, Serkan; Temizer, Selim; Department of Computer Engineering (2014)
As distributed simulations became a new trend in the simulation world by the end of 1990s, a need for standards that provide rules for intercommunication of complex simulation systems has appeared. High Level Architecture (HLA) has been proposed by the United States Department of Defense (DOD) and has become a widely-used standard for the intercommunication of distributed simulations. The software that implements the HLA standard is called run-time infrastructure (RTI). Various closed and open source RTIs e...
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...
Guide to Distributed Simulation with HLA
TOPÇU, OKAN; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S. (Springer International Publishing, 2017-01-01)
This invaluable textbook/reference provides a hands-on guide to the application of good software development practices to the construction of distributed simulation systems, with a particular focus on High Level Architecture (HLA). Emphasizing a learning-by-doing approach supported by examples, the text offers practical advice on real-world development issues for all engineers and programmers entering the field.
Definition of domain specific components in software product lines based on feature variability
İbrahim Onuralp, Yiğit; Doğru, Ali Hikmet (2015-11-01)
This research proposes a preliminary methodology for the determination of a set of components to populate the domain model of a Software Product Line infrastructure. The approach is based on variability specifications that is rooted in Feature Models and reflected a variable component model: VCOSEML. An initial set of proposed components is modified with respect to the feature constraints and other design metrics such as coupling, cohesion, and size-oriented comp...
