NMF-based aspect models in stepexpress forbuilding and process plant simulation
Abstract: Automated design performance assessment through simulation will be an
important aspect of future product model technology. The research in this area
has so far been focused on traditional simulation tools. However, the rapid
development of new structurally different tools calls for a shift of attention. New
object-oriented methods of describing simulation models can and should be
integrated with the product model itself. In this paper we will briefly review a
current development trend in continuous simulation and present a new language
for model description, Neutral Model Format (NMF), which in recent years has
gained considerable attention in the field of building simulation. The possibility
of joining the continued NMF development with the STEP domain is discussed
and some examples of NMF based EXPRESS models are presented.
