Article Abstract

The INSYDE performance evaluation support tool improves the usual simulation methods for early evaluation of new and upgraded systems. INSYDE can support models of large, complex systems, and it makes transaction flows easy to understand. Its four components are: model definition, automatic simulation program generation, simulation execution, and statistical data editing. Features of INSYDE include: 59 node types for representing process flows; useful links between the system side and evaluation side of the evaluation procedure; tracing methods; easy modification of the model; and readily available report generation. A comparison between INSYDE and the SLAMII simulation language found that INSYDE needed 1/7th of the time SLAMII required for doing the evaluation and that the basics of INSYDE can be learned up to four times as fast as becoming adept with SLAMII.
