dc.description.abstractCurrent software specification techniques and specification languages are reviewed, emphasizing research activities in software specification languages. Alternate software life cycle models are described and compared to a simulation life cycle model. The importance of constructing a model specification before creating a programmed model is emphasized. Disadvantages in using simulation programming languages as model specification languages are discussed. The multiple uses which are made of a model specification are presented; these uses correspond to the alternate uses made of a requirements specification for general software. To evaluate where specification tools for general software will be effective for simulation modeling, both areas where the simulation life cycle corresponds to a general software life cycle and areas in which they differ are characterized.
