Composing Variable Structure Models: A Revision of COMO

In: Proceedings of the 2013 SimulTech, ed. by Ören, T. and Kacprzyk, J. and Leifsson, L. and Obaidat, M. S. and Koziel, S., pp. 286-293, SCITEPRESS.

Component-based approaches aim at facilitating the storage, exchange, and reuse of components and their compositions. For this, components provide interfaces that formulate contracts composition can be based upon. Variable structure models imply the change of compositions, couplings, and even interfaces in terms of ports. Thus, combining variable structure models with a component-based approach poses specific challenges. We present a revision of the model composition framework COMO taking the specifics of variable structure models into account, e.g., by specifying interfaces as sets of parameters and supersets of ports, defining couplings intensionally, and introducing supersets of components as part of the compositional description. As target for generating executable simulation models the formalism ML-DEVS has been selected.
