The purpose of this paper is to present a Visual Simulation Support Environment (VSSE) based on the multifaceD coOnceptual fraMework for vIsual simulatioN mOdeling (DOMINO). The ever-increasing complexity of visual simulation model development is undeniable. There is a need for automated support throughout the entire visual simulation model development life cycle. This support is furnished by the VSSE which is composed of integrated software tools providing computer-aided assistance in the development and execution of a visual simulation model. The VSSE has been jointly developed with the DOMINO. Its architecture consists of three layers: hardware and operating system, kernel VSSE, minimal VSSE, and VSSEs. This paper focuses on the minimal VSSE toolset. Evaluation of the VSSE shows that it adequately satisfies all of its 13 design objectives.
