Modeling and simulation of a resilient dynamic protection system to protect critical infrastructures
Critical infrastructures tend to become more and more complex. Various kinds of simulations can help to manage this complexity. We introduce the SyMo/Ready modeling and simulation system - an agent-based system especially dedicated to complex system modeling, simulations, and analysis. We demonstrate this system's capabilities with an example from the EU project SECRET dealing with resilient railway communication architectures. We show the different kinds of agents, their behaviors, their communication, and how various scenarios can be modeled and simulated for an analysis of such complex system dynamics under various conditions. We demonstrate how agent-based models and simulations of complex technical systems are well-suited for behavior analysis and resilience estimations.
