Abstract
The main goal of this work is to produce a sophisticated object-oriented design tool for simulating real-time applications. The basis of this tool is Actor-based simulation, a powerful mechanism for modelling real world objects simply, quickly and intuitively. It combines features of event-based and clock-based simulation and allows designers to use both in a common framework. Actors can be used to represent everything from the most basic to the most complex components. Complex objects are constructed by modelling their subcomponents and interactions. The Actor paradigm provides a good model of concurrency and facilitates the development of comprehensive monitoring and debugging tools.
