San Diego, California (USA), July 15-18, 2007
This article emphasizes the application of system engineering principles to the development of Modeling and Simulation (M&S) applications. Clear distinction between M&S for system engineering and system engineering (SE) for M&S is presented to clarify the need for simulation system engineering. Furthermore, the characteristics of emergent open, complex, and adaptive M&S applications are overviewed to make the case for agent-directed simulation system engineering. An agent-directed simulation view of developing such applications is presented within the framework of a cognitive system engineering perspective.
