Abstract: Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) simulation packages are widely used in industry. Several international groups are currently investigating techniques to integrate distributed simulation facilities in these packages. Through the use of a case study developed with the Ford Motor Company, this paper investigates time management issues in COTS simulation packages. Time management is classified on the basis of the ordering of events that are externally produced to a federate and the ordering of these with events that occur within a COTS simulation package federate. Several approaches to the latter are discussed and one approach is presented as the most effective. Finally the paper presents a bounded buffer problem and proposes the classification of information sharing with respect to the certification of solution.
