Simple system exploration and simulation

This is an ongoing project.


While designing the architecture for a system, various decisions need to be made and the impact of those decisions on the performance of the system may not be clear. We are developing an iPad application to support an exploratory approach to making these design decisions. Using our application, system designers can make changes to a simulated system, such as the types and number of components, etc and immediately get feedback on the performance. The goal is to make this process quick and simple so that many design alternatives can be considered.
