Development of an Object-Oriented Simulator for Evaluating Object-Oriented CIM S/W
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 8, issue 1, 1999, Pages 1~18
Current CIM systems need to correspond flexibly to the frequent change of demands of the customers and the fast changing informations about the production environment. The demands have brought forth CIM systems developed using object-oriented technology, with reusability, expansibility, and flexibility for the system components. Due to the fact that the OO-CIM system has been developed based on an incomplete data, the constructed system must be implemented to the actual surroundings to see how pertinent it is. Hence, this paper presents an OO-simulator as a means to evaluate the pertinency and the efficiency of the developed CIM system. The OO-simulator can determine the problems likely to occur when a developed CIM system is implemented to the actual site and evaluate the efficiency beforehand. Such properties will decrease the cost of CIM system development and increase the reliability of the system. This paper presents a framework for an OO-simulator composed of a virtual factory component embodying the characteristics of a virtual factory, a connector component for the interface between the CIM system and the simulator, a configuration component for modeling the constituent structure of the CIM system, and a timer component in charge of the time advance for the simulation.
Design of an Algorithm to Simulate Surface Roughness in a Turning for an Integrated Machining Simulation System
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 8, issue 1, 1999, Pages 19~33
The fundamental issues to evaluate machine tools performance through simulation pertain to the physical models of the machine tool itself and of process while the practical problems are related to the development of the modular software structure. It allows the composition of arbitrary machine/process models along with the development of programs to evaluate each state of machining process. Surface roughness is one of the fundamental factors to evaluate machining process and performance of machine tool, but it is not easy to evaluate surface roughness due to its tribological complexity. This paper presents an algorithm to calculate surface roughness considering cutting geometry, cutting parameters, and contact dynamics of cutting between tool and workpiece as well as tool wear in turning process. This proposed algorithm could be used in the designed virtual machining system. The system can be used to evaluate the surface integrity of a turned surface during the design and process planning phase for the design for manufacturability analysis of the concurrent engineering.
Performance Evaluation for a Multiprocessor Computer System Using a Commercial Workload
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 8, issue 1, 1999, Pages 35~49
The CC-NUMA based, distributed shared memory is an emerging architecture for multiprocessor computer systems because of its scalability and easy of programming. In this paper, we analyzed performance of a ring-based, CC-NUMA multiprocessor computer system using a commercial workload targeted for popular OLTP applications. Based on the traces collected from real machines, the characteristics of the commercial workload could be obtained. The simulation results showed that the bottleneck on the ring could be effectively removed by using a dual ring structure. We believe our simulation methodology and results will help us to design better multiprocessor computer systems for commercial application domains.
Performance Evaluation and Proposal of Cell Scheduling Method of Queue for the ATM Switch
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 8, issue 1, 1999, Pages 51~61
A cell scheduling method of Queue for the ATM switch is proposed and simulated. In this paper, we present the cell scheduling method proper to the proposed queue and the improved queue with Queue Sharing(QS) structure for CBR, VBR, ABR traffic. The proposed QS structure minimizes the CLS(Cell Loss Ratio) of ABR traffic and decreases the CLR of bursty VBR traffic. Also we propose a cell scheduling method using VRR(Variable Round Robin) scheme proper to the high-speed(ATM) switch. The VRR scheme provides a fairness in terms of service chance for the queues in the ATM switch as well as QOS of their cell delay characteristic of CBR and VBR traffic, QOS of ABR CLR. The simulation results show the proposed method achieves excellent CLR and average cell delay performance for the various ATM traffic services in the Queue Sharing structure.
Simulation Analysis of Part Release Algorithm under Dynamic Tool Allocation in SSMS
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 8, issue 1, 1999, Pages 63~76
Recently in manufacturing environment, manufacturing order is characterized by unstable market demand, shorter product life cycle, a variety of product and shorter production lead time. In order to adapt this manufacturing order, flexible manufacturing systems(FMS) in manufacturing technology advances into the direction that machines become further versatile functionally and that tools are controlled by fast tool delivery device. Unlike conventional FMS to mainly focus on part flow, it is important to control tool flow in single-stage multimachine systems(SSMS), consisting of versatile machines and fast tool delivery device. This research is motivated by the thought that exact estimation of tool competition at part release in SSMS enhances the system performance. In this paper, in SSMS under dynamic tool allocation strategy to share tools among machines, we propose real-time part release and tool allocation algorithms which can apply real factory and which can improve system performance.
Development of Efficient Conservative Algorithm for Distributed Simulation
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 8, issue 1, 1999, Pages 77~88
There are two approaches to handle the Causality Error in parallel and distributed simulation. One approach is based on the conservative time synchronization and the other is the optimistic time synchronization. In this paper an efficient null message reduction method for the conservative time synchronization approach is suggested with the experimental results, which could improve performance of simulation and avoid deadlock situations.
Model-based Design for Autonomous Defense Systmes
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 8, issue 1, 1999, Pages 89~99
The major objective of this research is to propose a design architecture for autonomous defense systems for supporting highly intelligent behavior by combining decision, perception, and action components. Systems with such high levels of autonomy are critical for advanced battlefield missions. By integrating a plenty of advanced modeling concepts such as system entity structure, endomorphic modeling, engine-based modeling, and hierarchical encapsulation & abstraction principle, we have proposed four layered design methodology for autonomous defense systems that can support an intelligent behavior under the complicated and unstable warfare. Proposed methodology has been successfully applied to a design of autonomous tank systems capable of supporting the autonomous planning, sensing, control, and diagnosis.
A Visual Modeling Environment for Web-based Simulation
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 8, issue 1, 1999, Pages 101~111
The Web-based simulation was introduced for conducting simulation experiments in the Internet and the Web. Due to the use of the Java language, the Web-based simulation can have such characteristics as reusability, portability, and the capability of execution on the Web. Most of existing Web-based simulation tools have focused mainly on the development of the runtime simulation libraries and mechanisms on the Web. Thus, the model development work in such Web-based simulation tools still requires hand-written coding of model developers. This paper presents a visual model development environment for the Web-based simulation. The proposed environment provides a framework for model development and animation. To show the effectiveness of the proposed environment, we perform simulation experiments for transaction routing algorithms in a distributed transaction processing system.
An XML-based DEVS Markup Language for Sharing Simulation Models on the Web
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 8, issue 1, 1999, Pages 113~138
Driven by the explosive expansion and acceptance of the Internet and its multimedia front-end, the Web, a new generation of the modeling and simulation tools have come up with the name of Web-Based Simulation (WBS). Most of WBS libraries inherit its powerful advantages from Java. However, there are cases where explicit specification of models or interface objects is more desirable than the black-box programs. This paper presents an XML-based DEVS (Discrete Event System Specification) markup language for sharing simulation models on the Web. DEVS provides a system-theoretic formalism for the language while XML supports platform-independent data access. This paper focuses on the design of such a language.
