Résumé : The availability of good software tools is vital to simulation practitioners. The objective of the OSISIM project (open system integrated simulator) is to set up an environment which integrates facilities and tools to build a communication system, and to study its performance. The environment is called AMS : atelier for modelling and simulation. Using it, the network architect, i.e. the user of the atelier, can quickly construct, in a graphical environment, a concise system from models of several standard networks available in a specific library, and execute the system in an efficient manner. Starting with an outline of the components of the atelier, we describe the AMS prototype, and the internal structure of basic models to be included in it. Moreover, a concrete example of a communication system including a satellite backbone is provided to illustrate how AMS is used to simulate such a system. Copyright © 1995 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
