Abstract

Simulation models are often used as decision support tools. They intend to imitate real world complex phenomena or processes. For this purpose, simulation platforms has the simulated models evolve by advancing a virtual time. Thus, users could benefit from shorter, but relevant simulations. The simulated time is managed by the scheduler and how this is done could significantly impact on the performance of the simulation platform. However, conventional time scheduling approaches are still limited in some situations. The temporality model approach was proposed as an interesting solution. It addresses a number of criteria that the classical time scheduling approaches do not fulfil. In this paper, we first describe the fundamental of the temporality model approach. Then, we implement it in a simulation model called the SKUADCityModel. Finally, we show the performance advantages of this type of approach.
