Abstract:

Reusability and composability RC are two important quality characteristics that have been very difficult to achieve in the Modelling and Simulation MS discipline. Reuse provides many technical and economical benefits. Composability has been increasingly crucial for MS of a system of systems, in which disparate systems are composed with each other. The purpose of this paper is to describe how RC can be achieved by using a simulation conceptual model CM in a community of interest COI. We address RC in a multifaceted manner covering many MS areas types. MS is commonly employed where RC are very much needed by many COIs. We present how a CM developed for a COI can assist in RC for the design of any type of large-scale complex MS application in that COI. A CM becomes an asset for a COI and offers significant economic benefits through its broader applicability and more effective utilization.
