MS4 Me provides a primary means of creating simulation models through transformation of Finite Deterministic DEVS (FDDEVS) specifications. This chapter provides an understanding first, of the FDDEVS models, and second that how these files get transformed into DEVS atomic models expressed in Java. We then show how you can enhance FDDEVS models to enable to them to automatically generate DEVS atomic models in Java that have full capability to express messages and states. We also show how hierarchical models can be created using the Sequence Designer and then enhanced using the FDDEVS elaboration process.
