The High Level Architecture (HLA) is the first consistent standard for creating component-based computer models and simulations. Recently adopted by the U.S. Department of Defense -- the world's #1 user of computer models and simulations -- HLA is now undergoing international standardization. HLA will generate a large worldwide market for plug-in modeling components -- and if you want to succeed in this market, you need this book. Authored by recognized leaders of the HLA community, it's the only authoritative guide to HLA for decision-makers, software engineers, architects, and project managers alike.

Creating Computer Simulation Systems starts with a broad introduction to HLA, for both technical and managerial newcomers. Understand HLA's architecture, technical goals, and key concepts. Next, learn how to apply HLA in ever greater detail as you walk through an extended tutorial that shows HLA at work in solving a significant real-world modeling and simulation problem. Included is a omplete implementation of HLA for Windows PCs.
