Abstract

Due to the increasing complexity of modern production processes, the use of tools providing their simulation is getting more and more common. The simulation of a production process in its entirety, depending on the level of detail, often requires the coupling of several, specialised simulation tools. The lack of uniform structures, syntax and semantics among the considered file formats, the special simulation context and the typical accumulation of huge data volumes, complicates the use of established enterprise application integration solutions. Thus, the need for a tailor-made framework for simulation integration purposes arises. The implementation of such a framework is requested to be easy adaptable, so that changes in virtual production circumstances causes only little efforts in the infrastructure, and at the same time taking care about domain specific purposes. This paper presents such a framework.
