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.
