Main issues in M&S technology are outlined in the following table:
Table - Main Issues in M&S Technology
Main Issues in M&S Technology
Rule-based systems, knowledge-based systems, expert systems
Software agents (intelligent agents, emotional agents)
Agent-directed simulation (agent simulation, agent-supported simulation; agent-based simulation)
M&S tools and environments
Simulative CAPSE (Computer assisted problem solving environments) with simulation abilities.
Some desirable features in computerization are:
- Reusability of software with ties to reusability of specifications
- Interoperability: HLA necessary but not sufficient
- Integrated composable M&S ability
Ören and Yilmaz (2005) elaborated on the quality principles for the ergonomics of human-computer interfaces of M&S software.
