Activity Regions for the Specication of Discrete Event Systems

Abstract : The common view on modeling and simulation of dynamic systems is to focus on the specification of the state of the system and its transition function. Although some interesting challenges remain to efficiently and elegantly support this view, we consider in this paper that this problem is solved. Instead, we propose here to focus on a new point of view on dynamic system specifications: the activity exhibited by their discrete event simulation. We believe that such a viewpoint introduces a new way for analyzing, modeling and simulating systems. We first start with the definition of the key notion of activity for the specification of a specific class of dynamic system, namely discrete event systems. Then, we refine this notion to characterize activity regions in time, in space, in states and in hierarchical component-based models. Examples are given to illustrate and stress the importance of this notion.
