SISO Announces Release of Distributed Simulation Engineering and Execution Process

Orlando, Florida (February 17, 2011) – The Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization (SISO) announces the release of the Distributed Simulation Engineering and Execution Process (DSEEP) Standard [IEEE Std 1730-2011].

This standard describes a generalized process for building and executing distributed simulation environments and defines a generic, common-sense systems engineering methodology that can and should be tailored to meet the needs of individual applications.

"The DSEEP standard is a valuable reference for anyone who needs to support the design, development or interoperability of simulation applications including live systems," said Paul Gustavson, Chief Technology Officer of SimVentions.  "The benefit is that it addresses multiple stages of development and it can be applied to multiple architectures; it's very practical."

SISO-developed IEEE standards are available to SISO members via the SISO website, www.sisostds.org. Non-SISO members may acquire these standards directly from the IEEE, www.ieee.org.

About SISO

SISO is an international organization dedicated to the promotion of modeling and simulation interoperability and reuse for the benefit of a broad range of M&S communities.  SISO is recognized as a Standards Development Organization (SDO) by NATO and as a Standards Sponsor by IEEE. In addition, SISO is a Category C Liaison Organization with ISO/IEC (JTC 1) for the development of standards for the representation and interchange of data regarding Synthetic Environment Data Representation and Interchange Specification (SEDRIS).  SISO has operated as an independent 501(c)(3) organization since 1997.

SISO maintains the IEEE 1278 series of standards for Distributed Interactive Simulation and the IEEE 1516 series of standards for the High Level Architecture for Modeling and Simulation, as well as post-standardization support for the SEDRIS standards published by ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 24.  In addition, SISO currently maintains ten standards promulgated under its own authority, and has eleven standards in various stages of development.
