Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors propose a novel three-dimensional conceptual model for an emerging service-oriented simulation paradigm. The model can be used as a guideline or an analytic means to find the potential and possible future directions of the current simulation frameworks. In particular, the model inspects the crossover between the disciplines of modeling and simulation, service-orientation, and software/systems engineering. Finally, two specific simulation frameworks are studied as examples. With the widespread application of Modeling and Simulation (M&S) techniques, there is an emerging need to combine efforts from numerous domains. Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) (Erl, 2005; Papazoglou and van den Heuvel, 2007) has been a key enabler to extend the capabilities of M&S frameworks such as interoperability, composability, extensibility, agility, and reusability (Chen, 2007) in net-centric environments.
