Based on the integration architecture and interface requirements, all artifacts (models, processes, tools, etc ...) must be brought together to fulfill the defined simulation goals. To achieve this, a tool-based approach based on a suitable modeling language is most appropriate.
For creating this integrative simulation architecture, a method is derived from model-based systems engineering (MBSE). It guides seamlessly all the way down from high level systems architecture to implementable simulation model prototypes in form of SSPs. These SSPs are used by the SUCs to setup their virtual tests.
To reach this goal, the RFLP-pattern is applied to the system of the complete simulation, composed of not only the simulation model, but also the simulation software, platform, the simulation task and process. Diversity and complexity of real traffic participants is tackled by a frame model with configurable components.
This all is shown within the context of a credible simulation process. As modeling language, a subset of UML is used. This guarantees that the method is easy to understand and agnostic of the modeling tool. This new approach is explained in the context of the SUCs.
