Abstract
Conventional methodologies constraint models to be static during the all simulation. However, some systems are better perceived if represented by dynamic structure models. Recent work on modeling methodologies and environments has focused on the representation of discrete event systems that undergo structural changes. We describe the dynamic structure discrete event system specification (DSDEVS) and several other approaches to dynamic structure modeling and simulation. The DSDEVS formalism and its implementation in the DELTA simulation environment provide support for building dynamic structure simulation models in an hierarchical and modular manner. We conclude that general systems theory based formalisms offer sound semantics for dynamic structure modeling and simulation.
