Certification by the TC that all schema and XML instances are well-formed and
that expressions are valid: We so certify
Clear English-language summary of the specification:
This document defines an open XML protocol (XMILE) for the sharing,
interoperability, and reuse of System Dynamics models and simulations.
System Dynamics is an interactive environment for simulating the impact of
policy on complex ecosystems. The benefits of this standard are:
- System Dynamics models can be re-used with Big Data sets to show how
policies produce different outcomes in complex environments.
- Models can be stored in cloud-based libraries, shared within and between
organizations, and used to communicate different outcomes with common
- Model components can be re-used and plugged into other simulations.
- It allows the creation of online repositories modeling many common business
- It increases acceptance and use of System Dynamics as a discipline.
- It helps ISVs make new tools that help businesses to develop and understand
models and simulations.
- It enables vendors to develop standards-based applications for new markets
such as mobile and social media.
Relationship of this specification to similar work: We are unaware of any
that presents a standard format for storing System Dynamics models. There is
work on discrete event models, specifically BPMN, the Business Process Model
Notation, at OMG.
