||NMF-based aspect models in stepexpress forbuilding and process plant simulation
||Sahlin P, Johansson C
||Automated design performance assessment through simulation will be animportant aspect of future product model technology. The research in this areahas so far been focused on traditional simulation tools. However, the rapiddevelopment of new structurally different tools calls for a shift of attention. Newobject-oriented methods of describing simulation models can and should beintegrated with the product model itself. In this paper we will briefly review acurrent development trend in continuous simulation and present a new languagefor model description, Neutral Model Format (NMF), which in recent years hasgained considerable attention in the field of building simulation. The possibilityof joining the continued NMF development with the STEP domain is discussedand some examples of NMF based EXPRESS models are presented.
