DEVS Modeling with Hierarchical Planning: HRG-DEVS
Yi, Mi-Ra ;
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 15, issue 2, 2006, Pages 1~12
As the needs of intelligent systems increase, there have been diverse approaches that combine artificial intelligence (AI) and simulation in the last decade. RG-DEVS, which is the basis for this paper, embedded AI planning techniques into the simulation modeling methodology of DEVS, in order to specify dynamically a simulation model. However, a hierarchy concept, which is used for various types of problem solving systems. is not included in the planning of RG-DEVS. The hierarchy concept reduces the computational cost of planning by reducing the search space, and also makes it easy to apply the hierarchical process flow of a target system to planning. This paper proposes Hierarchical RG-DEVS (HRG-DEVS) in an attempt to insert hierarchical planning capability into RG-DEVS. For the verification of the proposed modeling methodology, HRG-DEVS is applied to model the block's world problem of ABSTRIPS, which is a classical planning problem.

Due to the exhaustion of resources and increasing concerns about the environment, reverse logistics has become a critical issue in recent years. We discuss the conventional logistics operations and the reverse logistics operations in the automotive industry. The traditional supply chain (TSC) and the reverse supply chain (RSC) models are developed to compare performance between two systems. In addition, results of the simulation models are discussed in respect to total costs, inventory levels and stock-outs to analyze the effects of introducing of reverse logistics system.
Sensitivity Analysis on the Performance of Multimedia Stream Server using Simulation
Park, Jin-Won ; Park, Chong-Won ;
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 15, issue 2, 2006, Pages 23~29
This paper studies the Internet stream server which serves multimedia stream services such as VoD and MoD. The Internet multimedia stream server is developed to provide 50 users with continuous multimedia stream contents simultaneously. This paper focuses on introducing design concepts, operation details and on evaluating system performance and doing sensitivity analysis with respect to the change of the system components. The performance evaluation is performed using simulation in order to identify the system component that mostly affects the system performance. The sensitivity analysis shows the service delay rates of the multimedia stream server depending on the user's service request pattern. Also, the analysis is made on the utilization rates of the core system components such as the PCI bus and the Ethernet card, and on the system performance change by adding more system components.
Fast algorithm for incorporating start and goal points into the map represented in a generalized visibility graph
Yu, Kyeon-Ah ; Jeon, Hyun-Joo ;
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 15, issue 2, 2006, Pages 31~39
The visibility graph is a well-known method for efficient path-finding with the minimum search space modelling the game world. The generalized visibility graph is constructed on the expanded obstacle boundaries to eliminate the "wall-hugging" problem which is a major disadvantage of using the visibility graph. The paths generated by the generalized visibility graph are guaranteed to be near optimal and natural-looking. In this paper we propose the method to apply the generalized visibility graph efficiently for game characters who moves among static obstacles between varying start and goal points. Even though the space is minimal once the generalized visibility graph is constructed, the construction itself is time-consuming in checking the intersection between every two links connecting nodes. The idea is that we build the map for static obstacles first and then incorporate start and goal nodes quickly. The incorporation of start and goal nodes is the part that must be executed repeatedly. Therefore we propose to use the rotational plane-sweep algorithm in the computational geometry for incorporating start and goal nodes efficiently. The simulation result shows that the execution time has been improved by 39%-68% according to running times in the game environment with multiple static obstacles.
Improvement and Performance Evaluation of Uplink Scheduling Method for the High-speed Portable Internet System

Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 15, issue 2, 2006, Pages 41~50
The high-speed portable internet service will be served in Korea sooner or later. However, the scheduling method for the packets of various service classes has not been determined clearly yet. An effective packet scheduling for various service classes requiring different QoS is necessary to increase the efficiency of radio channels that are the limiting resource. This paper proposes an improved uplink scheduling method to accommodate more calls and enhance channel efficiency. Suggested scheduling method reflects different channel conditions considering terminal's location within a cell to increase the transmission rate and utility of the channels. According to our simulation results, our proposed scheduling method shows a good performance in the aspect of throughput and capacity of uplink channels.

Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 15, issue 2, 2006, Pages 51~57
Production environment of semiconductor industry is shifting from 200mm wafer process to 300mm wafer process. In the new era of semiconductor industry, FAB (fabrication) Line Automation is a key issue that semiconductor industry is facing in shifting from 200mm wafer fabrication to 300mm wafer fabrication. In addition, since the semiconductor manufacturing technologies are being widely spread and market competitions are being stiffened, cost-down techniques became basis of growth. Most companies are trying to reduce average cycle time to increase productivity and delivery time. In this paper, we simulated 300mm wafer fabrication semiconductor manufacturing process by laying great emphasis on reduce average cycle time.
A Design and Adaptation Technique of UML-based Layered Meta-Model for Component Development

Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 15, issue 2, 2006, Pages 59~69
Component-based software development is introduced as a new development paradigm in software development method. This approach is different from existing software development approach because it is based on reusable and autonomous unit, component. Therefore, component-based development(CBD)is divided into two stages; component development process and component assembly process; application development process. Component development process is the core of CBD because component has a key for good software. Currently many methodologies or tools have been introduced by various academies or industries. However, those don't suggest systematic and flexible modeling techniques adaptable easily into component development project. Existing approaches have a unique orarbitrary modeling technique or provide heuristic guidelines for component modeling. As a result, many component developers are faced with a difficult problems; how to developcomponent models, when develop which diagrams, and so on. In order to address this problem, we suggest a meta-model driven approach for component development in this paper. We provide meta-models according to both layer and development phase. We expect that suggested meta-models allow component developers to develop appropriate models of the time.
