A true framework that supports almost any modeling and simulation requirement imaginable.
The monolithic architecture of most simulations makes them very time-consuming and expensive to modify as technology and requirements change. Rather than modify an out-of-date simulation, it is often easier and cheaper to build a new one. This explains why there are so many different simulations in use today and why nearly every major new simulation currently under development is not based on a predecessor. Unfortunately, new simulations continue to be based on monolithic designs and will someday also need to be abandoned.
The limited architectures of both old and new simulations have resulted in the waste of literally billions of software development dollars. Even worse, many pressing requirements for more advanced simulations remain unsatisfied.
Unlike fixed, monolithic simulations, all FLAMES®-based simulations make use of the unique and powerful FLAMES simulation framework architecture. This architecture makes simulations much less expensive to develop and maintain, because the vast majority of the software in every simulation is the same. Just as importantly, the architecture of FLAMES greatly simplifies the development of the custom software needed to support almost any modeling and simulation requirement imaginable, now and in the future.
A True Framework Architecture
“Application Independence” and “Stable and Robust Interfaces” are two aspects of the FLAMES architecture that make it a true framework architecture and that distinguish it from the architectures of most other simulations.
