Abstract

Designing simulation architectures based on domain models is a promising approach. Tools to support transformation of formalized domain models to design models are essential. Ontology languages offer a way of formally specifying the domain knowledge. We adopt a user-guided approach to model transformation, where the source is an OWL ontology and the target is an HLA Object Model, in particular, a federation object model (FOM). This paper presents a flexible transformation tool that enables the user to define transformations in terms of mappings from OWL constructs to HLA Object Model Template (OMT) constructs. The overall objective is to facilitate ontology-based model-driven development in distributed simulation.
