Using Specification and Description Language to define and implement discrete simulation models

Formal languages become important tools since allows the complete understanding of the model and helps in its implementation. However only few simulation tools allow an automatic execution of a simulation model based in a formalization of the system. Specification and Description Language is a modern object oriented
graphical formal language that allows the definition of distributed systems. It has focused on the modeling of reactive, state/event driven systems, and has been standardized by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) in the Z.100. Since it is a graphical formalism simplifies the understanding of the model. In this paper we show how we can use Specification and Description Language to represent a discrete simulation model. We propose a solution, implemented in SDLPS, regarding to how manage the time in Specification and
Description Language. Also, we show how SDLPS infrastructure allows a distribute simulation of the models.
