Intelligent objects: The Future of Simulation

This paper describes a new modelling system that is designed to simplify model building by promoting a modelling paradigm shift from the process orientation to an object orientation. Simio is a simulation modelling framework based on intelligent objects. The intelligent objects are built by modellers and then may be reused in multiple modelling projects. Although the Simio framework is focused on object-based modelling, it also supports a seamless use of multiple modelling paradigms including event, process, object, and agent-based modelling.
