  • Bryant, R.M. "SIMPAS A Simulation Language Based on Pascal" view details Abstract: SIMPAS is a portable, strongly-typed, event-oriented, discrete system simulation language based on PASCAL. It has most of the useful features of SIMSCRIPT II.5. However, because of the type checking inherent in SIMPAS, a SIMPAS program is easier to debug and maintain than the corresponding SIMSCRIPT II.5 program. This paper briefly describes SIMPAS and discusses the advantages of using SIMPAS instead of SIMSCRIPT II.5 for the rapid construction of reliable simulation programs.

  • Seila, Andrew F. "Discrete event simulation in Pascal with SIMTOOLS" view details Abstract: In recent years a great deal of research effort has been devoted to improving simulation software. Products currently available for discrete event simulation include GPSS/H, SIMSCRIPT II.5, SIMULA, SLAM, SIMAN, SIMPAS, PASSIM, and ASSE, to name a few. Some of these products (SIMSCRIPT II.5 and SIMPAS, for example) use process-oriented approaches. All of them assume an entity-attribute-set basis for describing the model to be simulated. SIMSCRIPT II.5 and SIMULA are general-purpose simulation programming languages. Alternatively, GPSS/H, SIMAN, SLAM, Micro NET, INTERACTIVE and ASSE are “packages” (I won't debate whether the terminology “language” is appropriate or not) that were developed primarily for simulating queueing networks, such as might be found in manufacturing or computer systems. SIMPAS is a preprocessor for a Pascal program that converts “simulation” statements into Pascal code for compilation and execution.
