The objective of this project was to analyze the current Tyche simulation system, identify the problems that affect simulation execution time, and make recommendations to speed up Tyche simulation execution. The analysis of the Tyche system consisted of identifying physical, conceptual and dynamic entities/components as well as their relationships, and extracting function flowcharts in the simulation process to help understand the system an diagnose problems. Based on the results of the Tyche system analysis, two kinds of problems were identified that affect simulation execution time including the problem of single-thread execution and the issues of redundant or repeated operations in simulation iterations. Three categories of recommendations are proposed for speeding up simulation execution and future Tyche development, comprising a parallel system architecture, a group of approaches for optimizing the design of the simulation engine, and a set of alternative programming environments for future Tyche development.
