DEVS-Suite 3.0.0 [https://sourceforge.net/projects/devs-suitesim/]
is the first discrete-event/discrete-time simulator that offers the capability to generate and visualize Superdense Time Trajectories
. Two new types of time-based trajectories (plots) are introduced to the Business Intelligence Reporting Tool (BIRT) and then integrated into the DEVS-Suite 2.1.0. This simulator supports a rich set of menu-driven capabilities to create and customize two new kinds of time-based trajectories. It is the next generation of the DEVS-Suite 2.1.0
which itself introduced Automated Data Collection enabled by the DEVS Tracking Environment
and data provided by the DEVSJAVA simulator. Simulation dynamics can be viewed at run-time as time-based trajectories and tables as well as storing into CSV files for post processing. Visualization of time trajectories can be synchronized with animation of hierarchical input/output communications between model components.
Both simulators come with the SimpArcMod model library which has a collection of models that have been used for several years in researching and teaching fundamentals of component-based modeling. Other model libraries (SOA-Compliant DEVS and SOC-DEVS) are also available. The Knowledge Interchange Broker (KIB) for composing DEVS and Model-Predictive Control (MPC) model types is also available. These are accessible from http://devs-suitesim.sourceforge.net/
DEVS-Suite simulator replaces DEVSJAVA. All models developed in DEVSJAVA can be converted to their counterparts in DEVS-Suite by only replacing the import statement of the former (e.g., import genDevs.modeling.*; import genDevs.simulation.*; …) with those of the latter (import model.modeling.*; import model.simulation.*; …). This is straightforward following the packages representing the MVFC architecture of the DEVS-Suite simulator.
