Abstract/Description:
The establishment of a network of persistent shared simulations depends on the presence of a robust standard for communicating state information between those simulations. The High Level Architecture (HLA) can serve as the basis for such a standard. While the HLA is architecture, not software, use of Run Time Infrastructure (RTI) software is required to support operations of a federation execution. The integration of RTI with existing simulation models is complex and requires a lot of expertise. This thesis implements a less complex and effective interaction between a legacy simulation model and RTI using a middleware tool known as Distributed Manufacturing Simulation (DMS) adapter. Shuttle Model, an Arena based discrete-event simulation model for shuttle operations, is connected to the RTI using the DMS adapter. The adapter provides a set of functions that are to be incorporated within the Shuttle Model, in a procedural manner, in order to connect to RTI. This thesis presents the procedure when the Shuttle Model connects to the RTI, to communicate with the Scrub Model for approval of its shuttle's launch.
