JAPROSIM: A Java framework for Process Interaction Discrete Event Simulation.

By: Bourouis Abdelhabib, Belattar Brahim


The opportunity to extend features of existing commercial simulation languages is limited due to the separation of the user from the base languages by offering pre-specified functionalities; thus deep access is reserved only to vendors. Separation has not eliminated the need for programming in simulation model building. In fact, successful industrial modellers are those who overcome separation by “programming” around the limitations caused by separation. Separation is also an obstruction to the long-term model development and maintenance because this programming skill is outside of the mainstream of information systems training in academia and within the enterprise.
