Abstract: Distributed simulation is a technique that is used to link together several models so that they can work together (or interoperate) as a single model. The High Level Architecture (HLA) (IEEE 1516.2000) is the de facto standard that defines the technology for this interoperation. The creation of a distributed simulation of models developed in COTS Simulation Packages (CSPs) is of interest. The motivation is to attempt to reduce lead times of simulation projects by reusing models that have already been developed. This paper discusses one of the issues involved in distributed simulation with CSPs. This is the issue of synchronising data sent between models with the simulation of a model by a CSP, the so-called external/internal event ordering problem. The motivation is that the particular algorithm employed can represent a significant overhead on performance.
