Simulator is composed of several devices that have a variety of forms and functions. These devices are connected to each other by a network intricately. For this reason, simulator development and maintenance process require a lot of time and money. In order to successfully develop the simulator, it is ideal that related professionals share the work and work together in parallel. However, development is carried out inefficiently, because task interdependence makes it difficult to work in parallel. In this paper, the developments of the simulator were classified into algorithm development and system development, and it was discussed how to lower the interdependence of these two tasks and support professionals. In particular, based on the requirements analysis of the domain experts responsible for the development of the algorithm, we designed the support tool for simulator development and proposed development process using this tool. We also introduced the concept of a DataSet in order to support algorithm development of domain experts and manage data flexibly. And we designed network architecture to enable flexible reconfiguration of simulator equipment. By using the tools to support the simulator development, domain experts are able to concentrate on algorithm development and it is expected to be effective collaboration. In addition, the development plan and management are expected to be easy because the development process is systematic and clearer.
