Guideline on Scenario Development (GSD) PSG

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”. The intention was to augment the DSEEP with regards to scenario development and propose content and structure of an information product for scenario specification.

SISO built upon the work done by MSG-086 and transformed the “Guideline on Scenario Development for (Distributed) Simulation Environments” into a SISO Guidance Product.

The GSD Product Support Group (PSG) purpose is to provide support for users of SISO-GUIDE-006-2018 “Guideline on Scenario Development for Simulation Environments”, including a discussion board and help for any issues using the Guidance Product.

The GSD PSG is also the place to submit problem and change requests (PCRs) which is the approved method of getting changes or new additions into the future revision of the Guidance Product.
