Hierarchical Modeling and Simulation System, HI-MASS, Hierarchical Control Flow Graph Model
The Hierarchical Modeling and Simulation System (HI-MASS) is a prototype modeling and simulation system that supports modeling based on the Hierarchical Control Flow Graph Model paradigm and simulation execution using a sequential synchronous simulation algorithm. The prototype is an object oriented C++ based system designed for a Unix environment and implemented using freely available software tools. Models are specified using two complementary hierarchical model specification structures, one to specify the components which comprise a model and how those components are interconnected, and the other to specify the behaviors of the individual components. A graphical user interface provides for component and interconnection specification using visual interactive modeling. Behavior specifications are constructed using C++ classes and functions provided by HI-MASS.
