Description

The benefits derived from rapidly constructing a prototypical simulation model for use in characterizing the scope of a project should not be underestimated. The initial period of contact with the end-user of a simulation will establish the 'ground-rules' by which the project will progress. This paper describes some experiences in the application of an expert system shell in the development of knowledge-based discrete event simulations. This model development approach leverages the benefits of object-oriented programming, frames for representing the objects to be simulated, and the graphics capabilities inherent within many expert system shells. The user interface relies heavily upon the ... continued below

Description

The benefits derived from rapidly constructing a prototypical simulation model for use in characterizing the scope of a project should not be underestimated. The initial period of contact with the end-user of a simulation will establish the 'ground-rules' by which the project will progress. This paper describes some experiences in the application of an expert system shell in the development of knowledge-based discrete event simulations. This model development approach leverages the benefits of object-oriented programming, frames for representing the objects to be simulated, and the graphics capabilities inherent within many expert system shells. The user interface relies heavily upon the use of graphical active images for the modification of important object attributes prior to runtime. Having a functional knowledge-based simulation facilitates the process of accurately determining the needs of the client.
