Abstract:

While there has been much attention paid to the applications of Modeling and Simutlation MS by DoD lately little has been done to address those broad technology areas that enable application-oriented simulations to be more easily constructed, run and analyzed. Model Composabilty is the ability to compose modelsmodules across a variety of application domains levels of resolution and time scales. A composability framework for simuations offers a quantum leap in capability and provides the sought after ease of use. However, composability is still a frontier subject in Modeling and Simulation and current capability is limited. While mdel reuse is close to the Holy Grail of MS the goal is not within sight. We are discovering that unless models are designed to work together they dont at least not easily and cost effectively. Without a robust, theoretically grounded framework for design we are consigned to repeat this problem for the foreseeable future. This position paper outlines the challenges and basic researches that are needed for composable simulation developments.
