PhD Course: Distributed Simulation of Complex Engineered Systems
The ever-growing advances in science and technology have led to a rapid increase in the complexity of most engineered systems. Complex Engineered Systems (CES) are the result of this technological advancement that involves new paradigms, architectures, and functionalities derived from different engineering domains. Generally, such systems are composed of many heterogeneous components, often designed and manufactured by organizations belonging to several industrial domains such as mechanical, electrical, and software. Components are characterized by independent behaviors and interact with each other to pursue the objectives of the whole CES. Understanding, studying, and designing CES is going to be a great challenge in the next few years. In this context, Distributed Simulation (DS) represents a powerful methodology to support the analysis and design of such systems by enabling the evaluation and comparison of different design alternatives against requirements through virtual testing. This opportunity becomes even more crucial when complete and actual tests are too expensive to be performed in terms of cost, time, and other resources.
This course introduces Distributed Simulation as a methodology for analyzing, designing, and operating CES. Key aspects will concern the definition and implementation of distributed simulators according to the IEEE 1516.2010 standard and the analysis of the simulation results.
The course relies on a problem-solving approach: starting from real case studies, students will be required to concretely apply the introduced Distributed Simulation methodology, tools, and techniques.
