Guideline on Scenario Development (GSD) PDG
The Guideline on Scenario Development (GSD) Product Development Group (PDG) will be developing a SISO Guidance Product for "Guideline on Scenario Development for Simulation Environments."

Scenarios play an important role in planning, engineering, and executing a – possibly distributed – simulation environment. Current simulation engineering processes (e.g., IEEE Std 1730-2010, IEEE Recommended Practice for Distributed Simulation Engineering and Execution Process (DSEEP)), require the (military) user and the sponsor of a distributed simulation environment to develop appropriate scenarios.

To improve simulation interoperability in context of DSEEP, the NATO Modeling and Simulation Group (MSG) Technical Activity 086 "Simulation Interoperability" developed a “Guideline on Scenario Development for (Distributed) Simulation Environments”. This guideline augments the DSEEP with regards to scenario development and proposes content and structure of an information product for scenario specification.

The product to be developed by the PDG builds upon the work done by MSG-086 and transforms the “Guideline on Scenario Development for (Distributed) Simulation Environments” into a published SISO Guidance Product.
