Abstract

Using simulation to model complex engineering systems can provide cost-savings for testing, while being able to stretch boundaries not normally feasible on actual system tests. The authors have been involved in researching and applying a toolset to provide such testing, in terms of behaviour analysis, for SDH Multiplexer telecommunications systems. This actual simulation has been implemented on transputers to provide scaleable and flexible topology emulation and a KBS tool has been prototyped to perform intelligent mapping between the desired SDH topology and transputer simulation. 1 Introduction In Industry, simulation is a cost-effective and rapid method for testing and designing new equipment and
