Modeling & Simulation
SimIS, Inc has developed an innovative approach that couples vast operational experience in cognitive systems engineering to create robust, open standards based modeling and simulation capabilities, providing a suite of executable models and simulation capabilities.
Live training exercises, while valuable, are often very expensive to organize and conduct. The limitations of live exercises could be overcome through the use of integrated modular simulations that model the major phenomena and incident response operations associated with a disaster. This technology could help to prepare for a more diverse range of scenarios than live exercises while supporting individual, team, or multi-organizational planning and training needs at lower cost.
Emergency Management will be an absolute must to support preparations for disaster incident management and emergency response operations.
Dynamic Process Modeling
Dynamic Process Modeling (DPM) takes process modeling to the next level by adding the simple element of execution. Applying executable architectures can support operational environments utilizing an open standards based solution and federal communities with measurable & repeatable environments. Also, environments of training, experimentation, and operational events can be virtually reproduced and evaluated.
By adjusting or changing the flows of activities, we can, in effect, adjust doctrine or TTP and see the effects on mission performance using a simulation environment that is linked to process and communication models. By applying simulation to operational processes, the federal government can reduce time and costs by testing certain aspects of a system’s performance within the simulation environment prior to spending the resources to physically build the capability. When used as an approved surrogate for a live operational test environment, such a simulation offers the test community opportunities for greatly increased flexibility and significantly decreased cost and complexity.
The SimIS, Inc. – EA Team
SimIS employs experienced Certified Enterprise Architects who bring expertise and certifications in multiple architecture frameworks (i.e., DoDAF and EA3). SimIS architects have demonstrated their proficiency, providing over 50 diverse Marine Corps systems, programs, and projects with EA support and expertise. We work with our customers to elicit requirements in order to provide Service specific and multi-service operational integration via solution architecture models and data development.
Our EA Team includes former Army, Navy and Marine Corps Officers who are experienced and well-versed in architecture development and proficient in using architecture development tools (i.e., IBM’s Rational System Architect). We are trained and experienced in data modeling, and have both DoD and Federal Government EA Experience. With a proven ability to deliver high quality enterprise architecture support, our team strives to find better, more effective ways to analyze, design, and implement solutions that support the business capability of an organization.
EA Approach and Benefits
Our approach to EA provides an important transformational resource for any organization, large or small, in providing the enterprise-wide view needed to effectively develop and utilize systems and technology for competitive advantage.
Our EA process produces several things of value to the organization:
- A clear understanding of the strategic requirements of the enterprise
- Models of the future state, which illustrate what the enterprise should look like across all EA viewpoints in support of the business strategy
- A road map of the change initiatives required to reach that future state
- The requirements, principles, standards, and guidelines that will steer the implementation of change initiatives

Dynamic Utility for Collaborative Architecture Centric T&E (DUCAT)
The DUCAT capability was developed as a result of a Network-centric S&T project designed to advance software technologies to support distributed testing events. DUCAT provides capabilities in three areas: test artifacts, test architectures, and visualization/data mining. DUCAT has enabled the representation of test artifacts and test architectures using XML, has supported interaction using portal technology, and information exchanges using web services. DUCAT is using data mining to capture changing C2 interactions to enable visualization of mission threads as they are being executed. DUCAT is enabling collaborative planning, execution, and reporting in a Network-centric Command and Control (C2) test environment.
