Support for Developing an Object-Oriented Simulation/Modeling Environment to Enhance C3I Simulation/Modeling
MONMOUTH UNIV WEST LONG BRANCH NJ
Pagination or Media Count:
The main objective of this research was to define, design and prototype an open, object-oriented environment consisting of a variety of integrated tools for modeling, analysis, simulation and engineering of computer communications and other systems such as information systems, business operations and production systems. This environment was to overcome certain problems seen with simulation environments that existed at the time and still persist today. These problems include the lack of i a simple to use yet effective performance modeling tool set and ii an open, integrated, object oriented performance modeling environment using a common programming language and promoting reuse. This report summarizes the results obtained in addressing these problems including an overview of the tools and environments that were prototyped as part of this effort as well as their applications to the performance analysis of some specific communications systems. Issues related to training and education in the use of these tools and environments are also addressed.
