CppSim System Simulator
Developed by: MIT ?
Available at: http://www.cppsim.com/index.html
Abstract
CppSim is a free behavioral simulation package that leverages the C++ language to allow very fast simulation of systems. Users enter designs in a graphical schematic editor, Sue2, run the simulations using a provided GUI tool, and then view the results within CppSimView. CppSim automates much of the code generation process and eliminates many of the difficulties often associated with C++ simulation. For many systems, the users can simply connect existing modules within the graphical environment provided by Sue2. When new modules need to be created, a template form is provided which the users simply fill in with code to describe the module behavior. CppSim can be freely downloaded from the website.

DMSolver
Developed by: Dail Singleton
Available at: http://www.daoftx.com/solvers.htm#OverView
Abstract
DMSolver (Dynamic Modular Solver) provides a structured language and software for continuous simulations involving dynamic or static (i.e. equilibrium) systems of equations. (An "equation" can be a one-line formula statement or a whole subprogram which computes an output from inputs.) A "module" is a simulation building block consisting of a block of equations and variables with connections to the rest of the system. There can be thousands of variables if needed. Compiled equation code is always used. A Windows-based utility leads the user through setting up the simulation and graphically inspecting results. Addon parameter estimation and optimization is available. A trial version can be downloaded from the website.

MapleSim 4
Developed by: MapleSoft Inc.
Available at: http://www.maplesoft.com/products/maplesim/index.aspx
Abstract
MapleSim, from MapleSoft, the creators of Maple, is a drag-and-drop physical modeling tool that applies symbolic computation techniques to produce simulation models of multi-domain systems. You can construct plant models using acausal connections between the components to represent their physical relationships, and then combine your plant models with signal flow-based control systems. MapleSim generates the representative system equations, reduces them to an optimal form while maintaining model fidelity, and runs a dynamic simulation of the resulting system, complete with a 3-D visual representation.

CPSim - Parallel discrete-event simulation tool
Developed by: BTI Software
Available at: http://www.bti-sw.com/index.php?p=1_2_Products
Abstract
CPSim 1.0 by BTI is a parallel/distributed discrete-event simulation (PDES) tool, designed for high performance and very large simulations. It is a result of a decade of research and development in the area of parallel simulation. Detailed models consist of thousands of objects requiring huge amount of computer memory and execution time. CPSim enables partitioning of large models into smaller units that run concurrently on several processors, utilizing high memory bandwidth and processing power. Excellent results were obtained on PCs as well as parallel machines such as TMC CM-5 and HP-Convex Exemplar. CPSim can also run on a network under the PVM protocol. CPSim is portable, hence an application developed on a single PC can run on a parallel machine or network, requiring only a recompilation. Therefore, even if you don't own a parallel machine (or have an account on one), you are ready to utilize the power of future cost-effective parallel machines. CPSim does not have a GUI since it makes little sense to build huge models by a drag-and-drop technique. Just imagine creating a model of 50,000 elements using your mouse! Applications programs in CPSim are build from a library of C functions. Models can be imported as ASCII files. CPSim 1.0 is offered free of charge for non-commercial use. For commercial use, a license has to be obtained from BTI. The download package contains the software, license agreement, manual and sample programs.

SimElements
Developed by: Nils Kjellbert
Available at: http://www.simelements.com/
Abstract
SimElements is a Python-based package for dynamic/continuous and discrete event simulation. It also has provisions for uncertainty analysis and optimization. SimElements is entirely based on Python and requires Python 3.0 or later versions. Nothing else is needed in order for it to work: no NumPy, no SimPy, no *Py, no nothing, except Python 3.x. No recompilation or relinking of your present implementation of Python is needed: you may place SimElements in any directory on your computer and use it immediately. Python programming is needed to set up a simulation using SimElements. SimElements provides a number of classes, modules and functions for solving problems with as little programming effort as possible. Normally, no additional definition of classes will be necessary, so setting up a simulation can be carried out with prodecural type programming (although you will have to punch out objects using classes provided by SimElements). SimElements offers statistical output processing, but does not have a graphical user interface, and no graphical output features. Spreadsheet (tab-delimited) format output is supported, though. SimElements comes with an extensive docstring documentation. SimElements is offered free of charge under a GNU General Public License and may be downloaded from http://www.simelements.com/.

Abstract
Simio combines Object-Oriented Simulation with Discrete Event, Continuous, and Agent-Based Simulation. Simio implements several technical innovations to overcome the scalability and difficulty of use problems common in most O-O products. While Simio's standard library of objects includes some sophisticated manufacturing objects (like accumulating conveyors that merge), it remains general purpose to effectively model many common applications. The included full 3D animation produces compelling animation. The ability to modify and define intelligent objects using process graphs without programming, makes simulation software easier for decision-makers to use.

Abstract
The Surrogate Modeling Toolbox (SUMO Toolbox) is a Matlab toolbox that automatically builds accurate surrogate models (also known as metamodels or response surface models) of a given data source (simulation code, data set, script, ...) within the accuracy and time constraints set by the user. In doing so the toolbox minimizes the number of data points (which it chooses automatically) since they are usually expensive. The toolbox tries to be as adaptive and autonomous as possible, requiring no user input besides some initial configuration.

Plant Simulation provides the ability to create complex digital models in an efficient and productive manor. Through its object orientation, hierarchy and inheritance these models remain clear, concise and predictable throughout a products life cycle. Multiple users can work on the same digital model, while libraries can be reused in other projects to speed up digital model creation and promote the use of best practices across an entire organization. Plant Simulation digital models can include production systems and processes that encompass material flow, resource utilization and logistics at all levels of the planning process -- including global production facilities, local facilities, and even specific production lines.

System Dynamics is an intuitive and widely-used notation for describing dynamics in terms of storages and flows, while objects provide a natural way for describing system composition and relationships. Simile also supports modular model construction, and modules can be nested to any depth. The resulting models can be run very efficiently as compiled C programs, and delivered to others as stand-alone models. Simile provides a range of tools for displaying model behaviour - but also allows you to add your own, customised to your own needs
