Paper Abstract

The dynamic focusing approach (DFA) has been under development for several years. Its intent is to address several of the issues of mixed level simulations, particularly the aggregational issues. Though the approach requires that the system be able to be modeled within certain constraints, many systems of interest fit well within them. This approach combines a hierarchical representation of knowledge with a stochastic propagation mechanism; this provides capability to gracefully move from coarse granularity to fine granularity under user guidance. Prototype tools have been developed for engineering analysis, combat simulation and TQM process implementation. This paper gives an overview of the approach and its current status.
