Graph-based Diagnosis of Discrete Event Model Specifications
Several diagnostics which assist in the construction of specifications for discrete event simulation models are defined. The model specifications to be analyzed must be in a particular form called a Condition Specification. The diagnostics are based on analysis of graphs easily derived from a Condition Specification. Most of the diagnostics are intended to be applied as a Condition Specification is being developed. Th ree categories for the classification of diagnostics of model specifications are defined. Two examples illustrate the graphical forms derivable from a Condition Specification.
