Various approaches to standardization of DEVS modeling and simulation artifacts are being actively pursued by the DEVS research community. In this paper, we consider standardization for web-service implementations of simulation models, an increasingly popular approach to simulation development. We show how DEVS/SOA’s standardized data distribution and time-management functionalities provide an advantageous platform for simulation federations of web service-based models. When augmented with automated analysis of web-service descriptions to produce DEVS proxies and enhanced with meta-data model characterization, DEVS/SOA can support effective discovery and composition of both DEVS and non-DEVS models expressed as web services.
